Shining a Light Series: Making the Arts Accessible
Join The Ghostlight for this poignant 2-hour workshop on how artists and arts organizations can make their programming more accessible for all!
Many artists and producers don’t know quite where to start when it comes to making their programming more accessible for all. For some, it could be they just don’t know where to start. For others, it could be the financial barriers of implementing different strategies. The Ghostlight has brought in experts from Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired and Ghost Light Artistic Interpreting to take some of the guesswork out. Join us for this informative 2 hour lecture on how anyone can make their artistic ventures more accessible, no matter the size of their budget.
During this 2 hour interactive lecture, we will cover:
how to provide a more equitable cultural experience for people who are blind or low vision and deaf or hard of hearing (and easy / budget friendly places to start)
how to engage and co-design with people who are blind or low vision
what makes a qualified theater interpreter
how to build your audience with access in mind
This lecture will be led by Keara Beck Ortt from Ghost Light Artistic Interpreting and Samuel Foulkes from Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. After presentations from both speakers, there will be dedicated time for Q&A.
