This panel conversation will bring together arts educators and artists with disabilities to discuss the importance of accessibility in creating more just arts learning environments for students with disabilities. Panelists will unpack the concept of ableism in order to articulate practical strategies for challenging deficit-based perceptions of disability in the classroom. In addition to discussing important shifts teachers can make in their approach to supporting disabled students, this discussion will cover easy-to-implement instructional shifts that enable meaningful accessibility in the arts.
