Removing Barriers to Your Online Content: Digital Accessibility and Equitable Arts Marketing Best Practices
In the arts and culture sectors, we oftentimes interfuse, overuse, and confuse the terms Inclusivity, Equality, Diversity, and Equity without always having a complete understanding of what each word truly means. Unfortunately, to our constituents, this obfuscation can make us appear insensitive and unaware. As marketers, in our efforts to reach as many people as possible, we sometimes overlook the best practices that enable our targeted audiences to access our content in the first place; this means our reach isn’t as wide and inclusive as it could be. In this session, we will discuss multiple inclusive design methods and the importance of full organizational compliance in making sure people of all abilities can better access our content in the ways we intend.
- How to recognize inequitable and non-inclusive digital content and spaces.
- Implement accessibility best practices into digital marketing, and how it can help make your marketing more accessible to all people, including those living with different abilities.
- Tips and tools to help you create more accessible and inclusive marketing materials and digital content.
