The American Composers Forum is an arts service organization based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Its mission is to “nurture the creative spirit of composers and communities”, and its primary activities “provide new opportunities for composers and their music to flourish, and engage communities in the creation, performance and enjoyment of new music.” We do not present concerts or events ourselves on a regular basis, but collaborate with a variety of partners to carry out our work. We both encourage and monitor the accessibility of our work in all settings to assure that all persons with disabilities are welcome. The Forum is committed to continually moving toward more complete accessibility.
The ADA policy of the Forum (originally adopted in 1999) states:
“The American Composers Forum is committed to the policy that all persons shall have equal access to its programs, facilities, and employment without regard to race, religion, color, sex, marital status, national origin, disability, age, public assistance, veteran status, or sexual orientation. Upon request and with adequate notice, any of the American Composers Forum’s printed information may be made available in alternative formats (including digital, Braille and large print). Please contact the American Composers Forum at firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 228-1407 for further information.”
Additionally, the Forum has established a Guide for Partnering Organizations who may not be familiar with the ADA or its requirements. It can be downloaded from this website below.
