Learning Community Digital Scrapbook

Post-it notes stuck on brown paper as part of a brainstorming session

Wanting to show that accessibility is within reach for any organization, the 2019-2020 Learning Community members created a Digital Scrapbook, capturing the processes and results of individual projects enacted at their organizations.

The Arts Learning Community for Universal Access is a yearlong program that brings together like-minded arts and cultural administrators who want to improve how inclusive their organizations are of the deaf community and people living with disabilities. The program runs July through June, and the application process generally takes place in the spring. 

Program Participation Requirements:

  • Located within Wake County.
  • A nonprofit exempt from federal and state income tax as either a charitable organization with 501(c)(3) designation by the Internal Revenue Service with established arts programming or a unit of municipal government. 

Interested organizations located outside of Wake County should contact Sarah Corrin to discuss their situation.

The 2019-2020 Learning Community application cycle has closed.
