Wheels Up! New England Regional Convening

  • New England Foundation for the Arts 145 Tremont Street, 8th Floor Boston, MA USA

 

Hosted by Boston Dance Alliance in partnership with New England Foundation for the Arts, VSA Massachusetts/Seven Hills Foundation, Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, and with generous financial support from the Barr Foundation.

The Wheels UP! Town Hall brings together disabled and non-disabled artists and presenters, dance and special needs educators, state accessibility coordinators, disability rights activists, disabled athletes, and rehabilitation, expressive therapies, medical professionals and others for a day of lively exploration. We will discuss New England's existing resources and expertise, and begin to craft an action agenda for enhanced participation in social and performance by dancers with mobility impairments. Open to the public, Wheels UP! is intended to be the first step in an ongoing series of activities that engage and support people with disabilities in dance.
