One issue widely considered important, but rarely discussed is access. How can arts organizations — especially those with small budgets — provide access to a larger pool of audiences through inclusion practices? How can technology facilitate reach and engagement?
A couple of weeks ago C4 Atlanta held its bimonthly TechsmARTs gathering to discuss this very issue. We gathered a special panel of guests, including:
- Dr. Patricia Nobbie, Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities
- Valerie Suber, Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities
- Nikki Strickland, North Fulton Drama Club
- Elizabeth Labbe-Webb, VSA Arts of Georgia
Douglas Scott of Full Radius Dance facilitated the discussion.
Many thanks to the panelists, and to 7 Stages for hosting!
