Round table with Dan Ten Veen (Spectrum Productions), Liv Mendelsohn ( ReelAbilities Toronto Film
Festival ) and Cindy Schwartz (The Muses: Performing Arts Centre).
The Interrogating Access series aims to equip artists, organisations and cultural workers with the
means to better address accessibility issues in the arts and in media production. The round
tables on best practices and institutional models present concrete initiatives put forward by
Quebec cultural organisations. The panellists will address the following questions:
- What does the notion of access represent in your field or organisation?
- What are the barriers to access that your publics or members experience?
- What concrete measures have you put in place to facilitate access to your services or to
increase the participation of more diverse publics?
While recognizing that each organisation has different capacities and solutions to meet its own
challenges, the ultimate goal of these roundtables is to generate ideas for actions that can be
taken in order to improve the access conditions available to the staff, audiences and members of
This round table is part of “Interrogating Access”, a series of talks and workshops on accessibility in art and media production.
