invites you to:
“ACCESS: Steps Forward to Inclusion”
How do we look at our institutions and the barriers that prevent full inclusion? Is meeting ADA compliance satisfactory? Do you think people with disabilities don’t attend your programs? Is it always about money?
Addressing policy and the need for institutional buy-in, Cultural Access New England (CANE) will facilitate a lively discussion for cultural organizations wanting to go beyond regulatory requirements and broaden community outreach, develop strategic plans, and create inclusive environments. Information regarding regulations and resources will be present in a workshop designed to support the Executive Director AND the Volunteer.
Monday, May 16, 2016
1 PM – 3 PM
Providence Children’s Museum
100 South Street, Providence, RI 02903
Food and drink are allowed in the meeting space, so feel free to bring your lunch or pick something up across the street at Rue Bis. Rue Bis Menu Link
