Before closing its doors at the end of September, VSA Minnesota, a “one-stop shop for arts access,” is sharing arts accessibility and disability awareness information at free workshops in five cities. Join Executive Director Craig Dunn from 1:00 to 4:00 PM to learn about accommodations for people with disabilities, disability etiquette and emerging trends in the field of arts access. Electronic resource lists, internet links and suggested contacts will be provided along with refreshments. The sessions target arts administrators, board members and anyone interested in access to the arts for people with disabilities.
