Description

The Seattle-King County Cultural Accessibility Consortium, in partnership with Town Hall, the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, and Seattle Theatre Group, presents the third and final workshop of 2019:

Nuts and Bolts of Creating a Stellar Access Plan

Presenter: Betty Siegel, Director, VSA and Accessibility, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

The key to successfully creating spaces, programs and events with an accessibility, diversity, equity and inclusion lens is to plan for it. A thoughtful, comprehensive, integrated and inclusive accessibility program plan that factors in everything from policies to engaging the community is something that any cultural organization can achieve. This workshop will take you through a step-by-step process of developing an access plan and highlight the tools you can use to implement this. Participants will leave with an easily applied framework for success.

As the Kennedy Centers’ Office of VSA and Accessibility Director, Ms. Siegel creates cultural experiences inclusive of people with disabilities of all ages addressing national and international disability, arts, education and cultural practices. She is a respected speaker on civil rights, compliance, and accommodations. She has a JD from the Columbus School of Law (2009).

Donations appreciated: As this is the final workshop that has been generously funded by the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, the SKCCAC would appreciate donations to continue this very important work for our arts community. We will be sharing more information in the near future on how you can contribute to this accessibility work.
