On the occasion of the opening night of King Arthur’s Night, we discuss the state of inclusion with regard to employment and workplaces for people who identify as Deaf, disabled or on the autism spectrum. Looking at various employment and hiring models as case studies, we ask how accessibility and inclusion are changing the way we think about the workplace, including the arts and artistic practice. What do we have to gain when we re-frame our perception of disability, from one of limitation to possibilities?
Moderated by Amy Nugent, executive director of Inclusion BC Foundation, with panelists:

Sarah White, co-founder & COO, Fairware
Alice Nash, executive producer, Back to Back Theatre
