The Art of Access – Training and Professional Development
Access isn’t only about ramps and sign language interpretation; access is an attitude! “The Art of Access” is an interactive training that examines how to “universally design” performances, exhibits, educational programming, and other events for people of all ages and abilities. We adapt this program for a wide range of participants—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.
School Programs (pre-K-12 classrooms and Transition Programs)
Adult Programs (Adult Day Programs or disability service providers serving individuals from age 21-75+)
Community Programs (arts organizations, community organizations, friendship clubs, Parks and Recreation)
Training Programs (any kind of professional development setting)
Curious about bringing Upstream Arts to your school or organization, but having trouble imagining what we would do? Contact us to set up a 1-hour “freebie”! This session – absolutely free of charge – can offer a better understanding of how we work to support individuals with a range of cognitive, developmental, emotional, behavioral, and physical disabilities.
