In collaboration with North York Arts, we are pleased to announce the Mentor in Residence x Accessible Futures program.
This program will offer a professional development series of 4 sessions (2 hours each) presented online in the fall. These sessions will be focused on increasing the capacity of non-disabled led organizations* to work with artists with disabilities/disabled artists and program staff.
In addition to being able to attend one or multiple sessions, participating organizations and staff will also have the opportunity to book free one-on-one consultations to connect with mentors to support their organizational accessibility goals, frameworks and advocacy.
Topics that will be address at the sessions include:
- Disability Justice for Organizations - Sept 15, 2022
- Disability Justice Journeys Sharing Circles - Sept 22, 2022
- All About Accessibility Baseline - Sept 29, 2022
- Race and Disability Justice for Organizations - Oct 6, 2022
Save the dates: every Thursdays at 3pm to 5pm, from September 15 to October 6, 2022.
All sessions will have ASL interpretation and CART available.
