Creative Accessibility is a series of online webinars and panel discussions that will explore disability art, the experiences of artists with disabilities and how to make art accessible. These workshops will be beneficial not only for emerging artists with disabilities, but artists at all levels of their career with and without disabilities.

Join Jenel Shaw, the executive director for Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba as she explores the many ways to make your space more inviting for the Deaf and disability communities. The workshop will include a focus on digital accessibility which will help arts organizations to ensure that their digital content is accessible in these unprecedented times.
