Artist Residency/Workshop Accessibility Questionnaire
Hello and thank you for taking a moment to fill out this form! My name is Shawna Barnes and I am a disabled artist living in Maine. I am also a teaching artist leader with the Maine Arts Leadership Initiative and have made arts accessibility my pet project. I am compiling a list of artist residencies and their accessibility levels to help disabled artists know which facilities are best suited for their needs. The information provided will be used to update my resource center. https://shawnabarnes.com/resource-center/arts-accessibility/artist-residencies-workshops/

Please fill this form out for your own studio/facility, but ALSO of the facility you attended the residency/workshop at. If you have attended multiple workshops at a variety of campus' and locations, I would love to have you fill out this form for EACH location.

Thank you!
I greatly appreciate you taking the time to answer this questionnaire. If you are an administrator/program director at the facility you answered this questionnaire for, and would like to talk more about how to increase the accessibility of your location, please send me an email! I'd love to chat and help find creative solutions to barriers that could prevent disabled artists from attending your programs!
