Consulting

As the state organization on arts and disability, VSA Michigan is a leader in the field. We partner with organizations, schools, and individuals to teach best practices in inclusive and accessible arts education curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation.

We provide consulting to organizations, schools, and individuals in the following ways:

  • VSA Michigan Arts Institute: A three day intensive focusing on best practices for arts based learning, inclusion, and accessibility
  • Professional Development Workshops: One-day workshops offered to create accessibility in a variety of areas including classroom curriculum, organizational programming, website design and communications.
  • One-on-One Consulting: We can work with you or your organization to help you meet your needs in the area of inclusion and accessibility.

Currently we are offering a day of workshops titled "Cultural Arts Access 101" in Charlevoix on September 19th and in Ann Arbor on September 21. We also hope to be holding these workshops in Detroit, Lowell, and Kalamazoo. The morning will be dedicated to making your website minimally accessible to people with disabilities who use assistive technology and much more user friendly to all people including people with disabilities. After lunch, we will have a workshop on required accommodations and immediate measures you can take to become more compliant to ADA requirements. After a break, there will be a presentation about selling tickets. It will focus on price-points for tickets, availability of accessible seating, and online ordering. That evening and the following day, Susan Fitzmaurice will be available for 1:1 consulting. See links to flyers for further information and a registration form.
