The annual Leadership Exchange in the Arts and Disability (LEAD) conference has called for proposals for pre-conference workshops and conference sessions for its 2015 event which will be held in Washington DC during August.

The professional LEAD network explores practical methods of providing accessibility to the arts as well as sharing information among arts administrators and managers in the field of accessible arts.

The fifteenth annual conference will run at the Kennedy Center from 5-7 August, with pre-conference sessions on 3 and 4 August.

Topic areas for the conference include accessibility policy, customer service and training, accessibility and historic properties, program evaluation and cultivating institutional buy-in. Read the full list of topic areas on the Kennedy Center’s website.

The deadline for submission is 3 November.

Director of VSA and Accessibility at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Betty Siegel, was recently interviewed as one of Media Access Australia’s experts in access. The interview provides further insight into the LEAD conference.
