Navigating Your Arts Career: Resources and Financial Tools for People with Disabilities

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 15:00

Working in the arts can be a rewarding and fulfilling career. People with disabilities have questions about managing their career and finances, including how to maintain benefits and health insurance while working, what resources are available to help transition to work or return to work, and how to save money for the future. Join our panel of artists and experts for an interactive conversation that will address these questions and more.

The National Endowment for the Arts and Art Beyond Sight present the second in a series of six webinars that are part of a toolkit designed to help expand employment and career development opportunities for people with disabilities as artists and cultural workers, which will be launched later this year.
