Digital Accessibility in the Arts | Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO)

Sean Lee and Kristina McMullin host an educational session that charts the emergence and swell of the Deaf and Disability Arts sector in Canada, and what it looks like to not only curate disability arts, but to develop the cultural aesthetics of access. This includes a brief overview of disability arts in Canada, current and future approaches to accessible curation, inclusive approaches to marketing, and communication as a tool for building community.

This session is part of the Digital Strategy for IBPOC Artists and Arts Organizations - Phase II with support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
