To better represent the diverse members of ADNM and the arts community, ADNM’s Board of Directors has voted unanimously on a name change. At the AGM on June 22, 2016 the vote was ratified. Community members have expressed concern with the use of the term ‘disability’ in the organization’s name. Although many people strongly identify with disability, the term still possesses a certain level of stigma. To promote a more inclusive organizational ideology, our new name is Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba.
We’re looking for a fresh, new look and logo design for our organization. Anyone is encouraged to design and submit a potential logo for the chance to win a $250 honourarium! Contest is open until September 30, 2016.
