National Summit on Careers in the Arts for People with Disabilities
VSA arts co-presented the second National Summit on Careers in the Arts for People with Disabilities at the Kennedy Center the summer of 2009. The summit featured career panels, presentations of new research, working groups, and Millennium Stage Performances from artists with disabilities. As a rare and important networking opportunity for artists and arts administrators across the country, the summit brought together professionals from the arts, education, government, and disability fields to evaluate progress concerning arts education and career opportunities and develop a strategic plan. The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research of the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy, the Administration on Developmental Disabilities of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Social Security Administration joined VSA arts to organize the summit. Materials from the summit are available at http://artsedge.kennedy-center.org/2009NEASummit/papers.html.
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month
October marks National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which focuses on promoting employment opportunities for people with disabilities. In observance of the month, President Barack Obama issued a proclamation calling on "all Americans to celebrate the contributions of individuals with disabilities to our workplaces and communities, and to promote the employment of individuals with disabilities to create a better, more inclusive America." Increasing employment opportunities and career development is one of VSA arts' guiding principles. Please take a moment to view the Campaign for Disability Employment’s “I Can” public service announcement (PSA). It features seven real people – not actors – with hidden and obvious disabilities, demonstrating what they “can do” on the job when given the opportunity.
