The Disability Arts Movement with LVACA
January 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
The Lehigh Valley Arts & Cultural Alliance hosts a free monthly Lunch & Learn series featuring nationally recognized guest presenters. The series focuses on art and accessibility — a pillar of our organizational mission — and aims to inform our Lehigh Valley artists, art educators, and arts & cultural venues about ways to make the arts more accessible to all.
Join us as we discuss the history of Disability Arts and its importance in the Disability Rights Movement, and create actionable steps to bring Disability Arts to the forefront. Our presenters for this event are
- Vicki Landers, Founder & Executive Director of Disability Pride PA
- Connie Vandarakis, Arts & Cultural Director of Disability Pride PA
Previous Lunch & Learn topics include the social model of disability, audio description, and accessible technologies. We are currently developing a professional accreditation program for staff and volunteers of arts and culture organizations interested in creating accessible spaces and better serving disabled artists and patrons.
