The terms "invisible disabilities" and "non-apparent disabilities" have been circulating in conversations in recent years among the arts and cultural sector. What is a non-apparent disability and how should this broad spectrum of disability influence how arts and cultural organizations develop programs, environments, and business operations?  

Join us for Arts InCommunity's FREE virtual workshop "visAbility: Accessing Arts & Culture" on Thursday, August 24 at 11:00 a.m. ET to find out. 

In this workshop, presenters will explore non-apparent disabilities and how barriers to access impact individuals with autism, PTSD, sensory processing disorder, among other disabilities. We will hear from individuals with lived experience with disability and direct support professionals who will share their perspectives and suggestions for making arts and cultural opportunities accessible for all. Attendees will gain valuable knowledge, tools, and resources they can utilize when navigating these barriers within their organizations. 

Founded in 1974, Arts InCommunity and partners work together to create inclusive communities where arts and culture is accessible for all individuals in the Southeast.
