ABS Awareness Month 2015: A Part Of, Not Apart From

*Welcome to Art Beyond Sight Awareness Month!*

Museums and cultural institutions around the world are joining Art 
Beyond Sight to raise awareness of disability, accessibility, and 
inclusion throughout the month of October. This year we have even more 
to celebrate, because 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans 
with Disabilities Act.  Here’s how YOU can be a part of it:

*Dial in to our 13th Annual Crash Course*.

Our annual professional development teleconference is bigger and better 
than ever.  We’re offering at least one hour’s worth of programming 
every weekday in October. Conversation highlights will include:

  * 25 Hours of Accessible Tech: Honoring 25 Years of the ADA with
    Alvaro Gutierrez,
  * The Artist’s Insight: Talking with Culture Creators about Disability
  * Building Accessibility in Museums: Topics from ABS’s Disability and
    Inclusion Curriculum Resource

And more! For a full schedule and dial-in information, visit our Crash 
Course <http://www.projectaccessforall.org/crash-course> web page

*Share your access adventures on the Stories from the Field blog*.

It’s easy! Tell your story 
<http://www.projectaccessforall.org/stories-field> by creating an 
account and writing a short blog post to share how you honor the spirit 
of the ADA every day.  The best part is, the blog will now live on 
year-round in the Project Access Newsroom 

*Support inclusive programs.*
