As AUCD has continued to monitor developments related to COVID-19, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to change the AUCD 2020 Gala: Celebrating Leadership in Arts and Culture to a virtual, online event. This virtual event will provide creative, engaging and fun multimedia content to celebrate the work of honorees Riva Lehrer and Kinetic Light, recognize the generous support of our sponsors, highlight our network’s efforts around arts and culture as well as the 30th anniversary of the ADA.

More information will be sent out as soon as a detailed virtual agenda is in place. There will be social media content throughout the day on April 22 and a virtual networking hour and recorded program from 7-9pm EST.

Our goal is for everyone to participate in some way as time allows, and for the virtual event information to be shared with as many people as possible, allowing attendees to connect and network around issues important to people with disabilities and their families.

We know this has been a difficult time for everyone for many reasons, but AUCD looks forward to celebrating with you all on April 22 to lift up those who are increasing the access and participation of people with disabilities in arts and culture, and beyond.
