Accessibility barriers that impact individuals with disabilities and older adults are often invisible to funders developing and managing grantmaking programs and grantee events. Without realizing it, we may unintentionally have obstacles to participation embedded in the way we operate. In this session, Anne Mulgrave with Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, Risa Jaz Rifkind with Chicago Community Trust, and Betty Siegel with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will discuss why accessibility is a social justice issue for arts philanthropy and how to identify and reduce barriers to access in funding programs, events, and materials.
