Founders of the Chicago Cultural Accessibility Consortium: Christena Gunther and Evan Hatfield
The Minnesota Access Alliance was recently formed in the Twin Cities for cultural administrators who want to “raise the bar for accessibility across the culture and arts sectors.” Staff, volunteers and advocates representing several dozen organizations have been meeting since fall 2016. Its first event features two founders of the Chicago Cultural Accessibility Consortium. Christena Gunther, director of tour operations and guest experience at the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, and Evan Hatfield, director of audience experience at Steppenwolf Theatre Company. They will discuss why they established a consortium of arts and culture groups three years ago, what impacts they have made, and offer a vision of how local arts and culture staffs and their patrons could improve what we already have in place to be even more accessible to people with disabilities. Their services, for instance, include free professional development workshops, short-term accessible equipment loans, an online calendar of accessible performances, lists of accessibility services at arts venues, an archive of past programs, and additional resources. Following the public presentation, they will meet with MAA steering committee members.
