About this event

Join us for Opening BGC Through Access, an optional workshop tailored for the BGC community. Organized by Nadia Rivers, coordinator of public programs, education, and engagement at BGC, and Dr. Theri A. Pickens, professor of English at Bates College, this 90-minute workshop will feature the Met's Marie Clapot, associate museum educator for accessibility, and Deborah Lutz, who is a freelance museum educator who specializes in visual description. The workshop will consist of an introduction to accessibility best practices, an overview of visual description and how to incorporate these principles into public presentations, and discussion of ideological questions that go beyond physical provisions when considering institutional inclusion.
