      Snapshot Session: Leadership Exchange in Arts and Disability 2019

      Every year the John F. Kennedy Center hosts the Leadership Exchange in Arts & Disability (LEAD) Conference.  LEAD brings arts and cultural organization staff together to focus on removing barriers to participation and inclusion of people with disabilities throughout our organizations. For everyone who didn't make it to Denver to attend this year, Minnesota Access Alliance will host a session to share reports from the 2019 LEAD.Presentations include summaries, key takeaways, big ideas and resources to get you started or further along your accessibility journey. This session is great for people just beginning to think about access or for those who want to learn more about the LEAD conference. ACCESSIBILITY   What accommodations will be provided?
