Intro to Access Riders and Guides
Online on Zoom: Register Here
An access rider is a self-advocacy tool that details information about an individual's access requirements. Meanwhile, an access guide is a tool that can be used by artist collectives and organizations to identify accessibility supports and barriers in physical and virtual spaces. In this introductory workshop, Salima Punjani will guide participants through starting or developing access riders and access guides with a series of individual and group activities.
Accessibility supports for this event include: CART captioning, notetaking, transcription, and recording. To request the recording, notes, and or transcript, please email us at email@example.com.
