  • Why is it important that LGBTQ people see themselves represented at historical sites and museums?

  • How can participants interact with LGBTQ people in a culturally competent manner?

The goals for this session include:

  • Participants will understand what it means to be LGBTQ, and the challenges LGBTQ people face daily.

  • Participants will help create a safer and more inclusive environment for LGBTQ visitors and fellow staff.

  • Participants will utilize best practices for interacting with LGBTQ visitors and fellow staff in a culturally humble manner.

Workshop - Museum Accessibility for Guests & Artists

Workshop
OMA and VSA Ohio have partnered to create a statewide accessibility workshop in five Ohio locations, June 6-20, 2018 - Museum Accessibility for Guests and Artists!

Join OMA and VSA Ohio for our statewide workshop - Museum Accessibility for Guests & Artists


OMA and VSA Ohio have partnered to create a statewide accessibility workshop in five Ohio locations, June 6-20, 2018!

Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans has a disability? That number grows with the baby boomer population and other market subsets. Museums and cultural institutions around the world are stepping up their game to be more accessible for people with disability. We all want to achieve our missions and welcome more people, but we can’t truly be inclusive until we’re accessible. You will find that as you make considerations for disability, you are more welcoming to the whole community.

In this workshop we’ll discuss disability history and trends, accessibility 101 (including customer service), specific adaptations you can make for your programs, and how to approach the authentic inclusion of artists with disabilities in your spaces. The goal of these workshops is to demystify access into something that is manageable, not necessarily expensive, and ways to make it a priority at your organization (big or small).

The workshop will be led by Erin J. Hoppe, executive director of VSA Ohio, a statewide organization making the arts more accessible, and include guest speakers from the disability community.
