The Arc of Philadelphia Announces Artist Inclusion Workshop

June 19, 2017

For Immediate Release

The Arc of Philadelphia, in partnership with Me, More and Normal, are excited to announce that we will be co-hosting a Disability Inclusion Workshop for Artists. The goal of the session is to identify opportunities to open the doors for artists with developmental disabilities. This workshop is designed for artists who are already thinking about making their process and their artistic spaces more diverse, and to give them the tools and strategies for including people with all abilities. The workshop is a great opportunity for folks that either are at the beginning of a process, or are continuously creating works.

A combination of artists, community organizers, and members from the disability community will come together to discuss:

  • How can we make art that engages all people with different abilities?
  • In what ways are the physical and social barriers of our artistic spaces inhibiting our audiences from diversifying?
  • What specific initiatives can arts organizations design to maximize the involvement of artists from the disability community.

We would like as many artists as possible to participate. If you are an artist and you care about the world, come help us create a more inclusive world! There will be food, fun, and art! We are going to learn so much together and from each other.

WHERE: Germantown Mennonite Church
WHEN: Saturday, July 22, 10am-2pm
RSVP: Email with any dietary restrictions or questions.

The workshop is FREE! We will be providing lunch and snacks!

GMC is an ADA-accessible space. If you have questions about accommodation, please email us and let us know!
