Accessibility for Arts & Culture Project Planners

Apr 08, 2022, 12pm-1pm


Event Information

In this free online session, learn about accessibility for project planners with writer, event planner and community organizer, Leah Horlick. From 2013 to 2017, Leah and her dear friend Estlin McPhee co-ran REVERB, a queer and anti-oppressive literary reading series in Vancouver that centered physical, financial, and other forms of accessibility while on a grassroots budget. This presentation provides ideas on integrating what they learned into your artistic spaces and programs. This session will include ASL interpretation and closed captioning. A corrected transcript and a recording will be made available to registrants following the event.

Registration is required.
