Where: Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center (6255 N Santa Monica Blvd, Whitefish Bay, WI 53217)

Access isn’t only about ramps and sign language interpretation; access is an attitude!

Join Upstream Arts for this two-hour interactive training, which examines how to “universally design” performances, exhibits, educational programming, and other events for people of all ages and abilities.

This session is perfect for artists, educators, support staff, curators, and organizations – anyone interested in using an artistic lens to learn best practices and tools in making their work or services accessible to the most diverse of audiences.
