Upstream Arts Teaching Artist & Spotlight Educator Training

Access isn’t only about ramps and sign language interpretation; access is an attitude! The Art of Access is an interactive training that examines how to universally design performances, exhibits, educational programming, and other events for people of all ages and abilities. We adapt this program for a wide range of participants—artists, educators, support staff, curators and organizations—anyone interested in using an artistic lens to learn best practices and tools in making their work or services accessible to the most diverse of audiences.

Julie has worked in the disability and nonprofit communities since 1997.

Founded in 2006, Upstream Arts has rapidly become an emerging, cross-sector leader at the intersection of disability, arts and learning. Upstream Arts now annually works with 100+ partners and serves 5000+ people of all ages and abilities.
