Creative Accessibility: Exploring Creative Access

Hosted by Creative Manitoba

Creative Accessibility: Exploring Creative Access with Amy Amantea

Created in partnership with Arts AccessAbility Network of Manitoba

Creative Access is a tool by which the artists can use to make their work more accessible for audiences who are blind or partially sighted. In this workshop we will introduce some of the techniques of this work, talk about the difference between a service provider who creates live or audio description and ask participants to give it a try in the spirit of access. Practice builds confidence and artists have ultimate control over their work giving them a prime opportunity to build in access from the very beginning

Creative Accessibility is a series of workshops that will explore disability art, the experiences of artists with disabilities and how to make art accessible. These workshops will be beneficial not only for emerging artists with disabilities, but artists at all levels of their career with and without disabilities.
