ADA 101. Thursday October 12 at 10:00 am.

Who is invited to come through your front door? Is hospitality ever a radical act? How does an organization go above and beyond architectural legislation? How can accessibility be affordable?

These information sessions introduce the responsibilities of the cultural institution under the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) and encourage the development of accessible programs. Primary, secondary, and tertiary steps toward compliance will be introduced and discussed. Don’t let fears of litigation keep you from moving forward. Join the equity and inclusion discussion of the Mass Cultural Council’s Universal Participation Initiative.

Presentation is approximately 1 hour and is followed by Q and A.The Essex Art Center is located at 56 Island Street, Lawrence, MA 01840
