Forums on Careers in the Arts for Individuals with Disabilities
The ARTS project conducted half-day career forums in April 2014 in Kotzebue, Fairbanks, Bethel, and Juneau and a full-day Statewide Forum in Anchorage on May 12th, 2014. The forums focused on challenges and opportunities around careers in the arts for individuals with disabilities. Artists with disabilities, family members and supporters, arts administrators, arts educators, and disability employment specialists attended the forums and provided input on ways to support and promote careers in the arts for individuals with disabilities. The task after the Statewide Forum is to report on outcomes from forum sessions, facilitate discussion on next steps, and assign tasks for moving forward.
