Chicago Cultural Accessibility Consortium resources for diverse programs/performances for people with disabilities

A new online calendar created by Chicago Cultural Accessibility Consortium (CCAC) that pulls together about 200 upcoming programs/performances for people with disabilities, hosted by about 30 different cultural institutions from across Chicago.  We hope this first-of-its-kind resource will establish an easy and convenient way for patrons to learn about upcoming Access events in one online location.  

 In case you’re unfamiliar, Chicago Cultural Accessibility Consortium (CCAC) is a volunteer-run group

Through monthly professional development workshops, this Access Calendar, and an active list-serv, CCAC facilitates a dynamic community of cultural administrators and visitors with disabilities striving to advance accessibility and inclusion across the Chicago region's vast cultural spaces.

The calendar can be found at chicagoculturalaccess.org/calendar
·         One helpful feature is that when you click on an event, it gives you several options: to share on facebook, to send info in an email to any friends you want to join you, to add directly to your calendar, to add the event to twitter, etc.   
·         You can also search by specific type of access, venue, and date. 

The Chicago Cultural Accessibility Consortium also has a YouTube channel in which their public meetings are available to view - CLICK HERE.
