Creating Access & Inclusion, Organized by Jeannine Chartier of Arts Equity

May 4, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Workshop #1 – Getting Started: Understanding Dis/ability and Improving Accessibility:  Wednesday, April 27, 2022 – 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Workshop #2 – Understanding Neurodiversity and Enhancing Inclusion: Wednesday, May 4, time TBD.

Following ISO Arts Consulting’s Equity workshops, we will provide a two-part workshop series to gain a deeper understanding of Dis/ability & Neurodiversity that will help small, midsize, and volunteer-led arts and culture organizations identify barriers and discover solutions to improve the accessibility of their organization and programs. Based on feedback from RI’s arts & cultural community, this workshop is designed to provide guidance about interacting, communicating with and including people with dis/abilities and differences to change things for the better and become part of the equity solution.

The first session, Getting Started: Understanding Dis/ability and Improving Accessibility, will introduce, explore and build upon your understanding of dis/ability that will provide ideas, approaches and concrete examples to improve accessibility throughout your organization and programs.

The second session, Understanding Neurodiversity and Enhancing Inclusion, will provide a deeper dive into neurodiversity, illustrate examples of access in action, and emphasize an array of resources available to enhance disability inclusion actions.

While these workshops are free and open to all, registration priority will be given to arts and culture organizations & culturally specific organizations that are current or past RISCA grant recipients.
