Dis/Rep is available free of charge to all people living in Portland, Oregon. However, we are asking that if you live outside of Portland or want to offer more support, please pay what you can so more people can experience this important work. If you are in Portland, you do not have to pay to register.
This workshop series is valued between $1,500 and $10,000 per participant. Though we know many professional development budgets start around $300.
Taking part in Dis/Rep workshops will help you develop skills for improving accessibility in meetings, events, and other social gatherings. This is a great option for professional development and ERG programs.
Dis/Rep is an accelerated program focused on experiential learning and critical conversations around Disability and Accessibility.
Produced yearly since 2020, and funded as part of Portland's Office of Community and Civic Life's Civic Dialogue program, Dis/Rep has become an important way for professionals and community members to experience a learning space that considers access beyond compliance.
