Cultural Accessibility Conference Goes Virtual

Art-Reach presents Virtual Cultural Accessibility Conference coming Fall 2020

Coming soon Fall 2020

Art-Reach is proud to host its second annual Cultural Accessibility Conference. For over 33 years, Art-Reach has created accessible experiences in the arts for people with disabilities. As a leading resource for the cultural community, Art-Reach provides training and educational opportunities to promote inclusive and accessible art opportunities throughout Greater Philadelphia.

As our sector questions what comes next after quarantine, Art-Reach is positioned to make accessibility services a priority for people with disabilities. That is why Art-Reach is planning our 2nd Annual Cultural Accessibility Conference for the Fall of 2020 as a virtual event. The conference will still focus on improving cultural access for everyone through multiple information sessions, workshops, and presentations. Art-Reach will also be hosting this conference during the course of a week, giving options for attendees to participate in one session, multiple sessions, or a full week of sessions.
