Asheville Inclusive Arts Meeting

After our visit to the Asheville area last year there have been continued efforts to keep the group of inclusive arts supporters together and actively meeting. Below is a letter from the organizers of an upcoming meeting:

This is an invitation
to meet, discuss, and brainstorm about how the Asheville arts community can become accessible to and inclusive of artists with disabilities, benefitting all of us.
When: Thursday, October 16, 2014, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: Asheville Area Arts Council’s new space:

Suites 144 and 143A
Parking: Street parking is free after 6. Nearest public parking is the Wall St. Parking Garage. Please let me know if you need transportation or any other accommodations.

access SPARKcon

Arts Access staff and board had a great time at SPARKcon 2014! We provided accessibility tips for attendees. We engaged many people with and without disabiltities pointing out different features about the many events SPARKcon has to offer. 

We invite anyone to give feedback, please email comments to Arts Access Staff. With all the traffic downtown gets during the summer/fall, accessibility is important!

If you need help accessing a downtown festival or want accessibility to be addressed for your downtown event, contact Arts Access.

Big thanks to our partners at Visual Art Excxhange and everyone involved with SPARKcon.
