Co-Presented with RespectAbility. When we think of diversity in the arts, do we consider the 1-in-5 people who live with a disability? Due to a lack of accessibility and stigma, artists with disabilities rarely get to take the stage to tell their own stories. This event will feature a conversation with industry leaders about writing for disabled voices.
RespectAbility is a nonprofit nonpartisan organization that fights stigmas and advances opportunities so people with disabilities can fully participate in all aspects of community. RespectAbility provides tools, trainings and contacts to improve the number and quality of authentic, diverse and inclusive representation of people with disabilities on screen and stage. RespectAbility increases hiring initiatives of people with disabilities and enriches the pool of disabled talent in Hollywood by connecting them to those who can assist with their careers, both on the creative and business sides of the industry.
