ArtsBuild Ontario and WorkInCulture present a FREE Webinar:

Making your creative space more physically inclusive
Presented by Kim Fullerton

Join us online!
Wednesday, November 29
12:00 - 1:00 pm EST

In what ways is your creative space physically accessible? How are you promoting accessible features of your space to visitors and renters? In this webinar we will cover ways, as space managers, you can determine what physical barriers exist in your creative spaces and rentals and how to make the spaces more physically inclusive. Also covered are ways to promote accessibility in your space - from using social media to post pictures of your front entrance, getting the facts right on your website, considering the height and placement of artworks and technical equipment, to engaging with the communities and organizations that can help you get the word out.

This webinar is relevant to any creative space manager looking for more information on ways to make your spaces more inclusive and how to market accessibility in the built environment. There will be time for questions and discussion following the presentation.
