Program Description People with disabilities experience many barriers to careers in the arts, such as inaccessible work spaces, fluctuating job stability and health benefits, and attitudinal barriers about employment opportunities.

In a June 2016 online dialogue with the arts and disability community facilitated by the U. S. Department of Labor, participants identified a need for more online tools, resources, and professional development opportunities for people with disabilities seeking employment in the arts.

Similarly, new resources are needed to help arts organizations see the value of including people with disabilities in their employment and other opportunities.

The purpose of this Program Solicitation is to select an organization to develop a web-based toolkit designed to provide resources for job seekers and employers to help reduce barriers to careers in the arts for people with disabilities.

These resources will assist artists and arts workers with disabilities with developing careers in the arts, as well as build capacity within arts organizations and the disability sector to better serve people with disabilities who seek employment.

The toolkit will be housed on the National Endowment for the Arts’ website.
