Media Arts And Employment: Both In And Outside Of The Entertainment Industry
CECY is sponsoring this workshop at the New Day 2012 Program, ARCA's Housing and Employment Conference.
Many young people grow up wanting to be entertainers or actors; this includes individuals with developmental disabilities. In today’s world there are actors with disabilities on popular television shows, in films and on web series. We will discuss how those actors got there and what skills they and others are learning from training in the performing arts. We will also take a look at how those skills transfer into all areas of employment.
