Everybody who seeks to engage with the arts should be able to experience and enjoy them. However, for those with disabilities, physical and online spaces are often inaccessible and even unwelcoming.

Accessibility icon in SCAC colorsThe South Carolina Arts Commission believes that when you know better you can do better. To that end, along with our partners Able South Carolina, we are presenting an informative webinar series designed for arts organizations around topics of accessibility for people with disabilities. Able SC is a consumer-controlled, community-based, cross-disability nonprofit that seeks to make South Carolina a national model of equity and inclusion for all people with disabilities.

The series is set to begin on Wednesday, Jan. 10 and, from there, repeats on the first Wednesday of each month until June 5. The sessions will run roughly two hours.

Representatives from Able SC will be hosts of the webinars, which are designed primarily for arts organizations. SCAC grantees and non-grantees alike are welcome to register and take part.

Topics in this webinar series will include:

  • Disability Culture and Awareness
  • Making Your Arts Programs Accessible
  • Alternative Formats and Accessible Communications
  • Building Inclusion through Employees an Volunteers with Disabilities
  • Website and Document Accessibility
  • Understanding Disability Rights Laws as a Community Organization
