*Please note that this event’s registration is full. The training is designed to include discussion, so we want to keep the number of participants to a number we can handle. We may offer this training again in the future, so please sign up for MRAC’s email list in the form at the footer of this web page to stay in the loop.*

Welcoming people with disabilities doesn’t have to break the bank! We’ll explore your legal responsibility to provide equal access, and share some free, cheap, and easy “culture of access” strategies that advocates at any level of an organization can implement right away without a hefty price tag.

In this online version of the Access on A Shoestring workshop, we’ll focus on strategies for ensuring your virtual activities are accessible to people with disabilities. Special guest Julie Guidry (Upstream Arts) will share a framework for accessibility, and how her organization is reimagining its activities virtually. Participants are invited to share the challenges of, and solutions for, digital inclusion. What will we carry forward when we return to “normal”?

Presented by Scott Artley (Accessibility Program Director, MRAC) and Julie Guidry (Executive Director, Upstream Arts).
