Everyday, people with disabilities encounter accessibility issues, especially in the entertainment sector. So in this workshop, we will be doing a roundtable panel where content creators with disabilities will come together to discuss COVID’s impact on creating content, especially highlighting accessibility challenges they encounter and more. As well, how we as a society can do better and make platforms more inclusive, adaptable and equitable. Including a Q&A from CiTR’s Accessibility Collective and from the live audience.

Featuring 3 panelists:
