Dialogue on Disability 2023: Celebrating Ability Jan 9-15
On WXXI Classical our hosts will celebrate how musicians with disabilities have overcome challenges to enrich classical music. Read stories about many of these musicians and work that is being done around the world to make music and performing more accessible by and for all.
Dialogue on Disability is a partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies - in conjunction with the Herman and Margaret Schwartz Community Series. Dialogue on Disability is supported by the Fred L. Emerson Foundation with additional support from The Golisano Foundation.
Since 2003 WXXI and the Al Sigl Community of Agencies have worked together to help break the ingrained stereotypes about individuals with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities with its week-long initiative, Dialogue on Disability. Held every January, the initiative is designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives and abilities of people with physical, developmental, and intellectual disabilities.
In an effort to continue its commitment to motivate individuals to take action and to include more people with disabilities in the workplace, in schools, neighborhoods, and in all aspects of society, WXXI has partnered with the Golisano Foundation in a year-long initiative called Move to Include.
