How to: Engage volunteers with disabilities

Funky Llama share their practice and experience of working inclusively with volunteers. In this hour session, learn how to make volunteering for people with disabilities a more valid and accessible experience. Funky Llama will facilitate conversations around how to overcome challenges and obstacles when creating positive and authentic opportunities within the arts industries.
