The aim is to initiate conversation about accessibility in the arts in Manitoba and identify concrete needs within the community. The series will focus on the needs of individual artists with disabilities as well as those of arts organizations that would like to become more accessible but require support to do so.
The goal is to spur tangible changes within the arts community as a result of this project.
