Continuing Our Work During COVID-19

Read the letter regarding COVID-19 by IDRC Director, Jutta Treviranus.

The Bridging Gaps to Access & Employment in the Entertainment & Media Industries for Persons with Disabilities project focuses on the transfer of knowledge gained in the development and implementation of a uniquely accessible online support system with social networking and an online learning system to an industry where clients with disabilities experience barriers and are underutilized.  An integrated management system and data base for artists will provide a referral service for employment; support casting directors, host online courses, and introduce social networking tools for community building.

Skills training for employers and employees with disabilities, will be provided through :

  • Online and onsite workshops/conferences/events;
  • Resources;
  • Internships/mentorships;
  • Leading edge content, transferable to existing learning institution’s courses.
