Big changes for MixAbilities in 2022

Feb 9, 2022 | Current Projects, Featured Stories, MixAbilities, News

H’art’s MixAbilities Inclusive Arts Training Program is evolving again! The six-module program, designed to enhance access to the arts by ensuring artists and educators are trained to effectively and empathetically support artist-participants who are Deaf and those with disabilities, will finally have a dedicated space in The Mix and gain a professional webinar presentation format this Spring. 

Thanks to the Anna & Edward C. Churchill Foundation, MixAbilities will have a dedicated space in THE MIX, including appropriate lighting, technology, and accessibility features. The Foundation’s support means the program can invite five new community artists to complete the training session this spring and the practicum this summer. 

H’art is also producing a webinar presentation for a national virtual conference and a physical gathering in Ottawa in the Spring. Cushman & Wakefield Kingston is supporting this effort and it will bring MixAbilities to the attention of professional artists and art educators across the nation. This kind of national outreach will mean over 50 professional artists from coast to coast to coast will be introduced to our inclusive arts training approach and learn to effectively and empathetically support arts participants who are Deaf and those with disabilities. This could eventually impact thousands of Canadians who are Deaf or have disabilities. More about this effort soon!
