  • actively engage participants through discussion, skill building and/or hands-on activities;
  • explore accessibility for a variety of cultural arts organizations, including performing arts centers, museums, theaters, state arts agencies, parks, zoos, and arenas; and
  • are designed for new, mid-career, and/or seasoned professionals.

There are a variety of formats to fit different presenting styles and topics – from day-long capacity building workshops to 80-minute conference sessions to 15-minute lightning talks.

The deadline to submit is December 2 at 11:59 PM Eastern.
