Arts groups to learn about inclusion at Vermont Arts Council workshop in Middlebury

MIDDLEBURY — The Vermont Arts Council this Wednesday in Middlebury will host “The Art of Inclusion,” a daylong convening focused on accessibility equity, and community inclusion.
This is part of the council’s The Agile Nonprofit program for nonprofit managers, directors and board members who want to become more efficient while increasing impact on the communities they serve. It does this by offering peer support opportunities.
At “The Art of Inclusion,” presenters with and without disabilities — including artists, leaders from arts and cultural organizations, and representatives from disability service, advocacy, and funding agencies — will share professional and personal expertise and experiences.
Participants will learn the importance of engaging a broad spectrum of users in integrated settings that provide, equal, effective, and enjoyable arts experiences. They will also explore the ways regulations and standards relate to social inclusion, the arts, compliance, and best practices.
This informational and networking opportunity will take place Wednesday, April 5, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Town Hall Theater, 68 South Pleasant St.
