On the right Botton of the poster is a drawing of three people sitting around a table talking and taking notes.

AANM is proud to partner with Creative Manitoba for Creative Accessibility, a series of online webinars and panel discussions that will explore disability art, the experiences of artist with disabilities and how to make art accessible. These workshops will be beneficial not only for emerging artists with disabilities, but artists at all levels of their career with and without disabilities. ASL interpretation provided.
