At VLAA, we believe that arts experiences and our operations should be accessible to all.

To meet our responsibilities to people with disabilities and older adults and to ensure that everyone feels welcome, we strive to make our services, programs, communications and facilities fully accessible.

American Sign Language interpreters and other reasonable accommodations are available upon request. Our webinars use Zoom’s automated captions (also known as live transcription) feature.

Our volunteer attorneys provide legal guidance that helps our creative community identify, prevent and remove barriers to participation.

Executive Director Sue Greenberg is our ADA/504 Access Coordinator.
