This two-panel session, moderated by WorkInCulture, will address the following:

Panel 1:  Our first panel will feature three artists/arts administrators with disabilities or Deaf, who will talk about what they have learned, how they work, and the skills, attributes, and support needed to forge a successful career in arts and culture.

Our featured panelists will be Catherine Joell MacKinnon, Syrus Marcus Ware, and Mark Brose

Panel 2: Our second panel will feature representatives from three longstanding organizations that have dedicated programs to help aspiring, emerging, and professional artists with disabilities and Deaf artists. These representatives will speak to the range and goals of their programs.

Our featured panelists will be Eliza Chandler (Tangled Arts), Danica Brown (Workman Arts), and Bushra Junaid (Ontario Arts Council).
