Virtual Event

Accessibility Compliance is a big key when applying for grants in the arts and culture sector, but this work goes beyond just the ticking of boxes.  What are some of the tools and resources organizations can reference when working through ADA Checklists for grant funding? What is the role of an access coordinator and why is this so critical?  In what ways does other legislation fit in with the Americans with Disabilities Act? What are some of the roadblocks that can derail organizational work in accessibility? What are funders looking for in the landscape of 2021? Join us for the expert guidance of Peter Berg,Great Lakes ADA Center Project Coordinator of Technical Assistance and Employer Outreach, Disability and Human Development, and Kathy Gips, Director of ADA Training and Technical Assistance at the Institute of Human Centered Design. This session aims to set your organization up for success with approaching materials commonly asked for and referenced in grant applications, and to allow inroads to start gathering the tools and resources needed to create sustainable internal practices. 

This session was made possible through the funding of the Illinois Arts Council Agency (IACA) and the support of the Chicago Cultural Accessibility Consortium (CCAC).
