The Venues

Follow these links to find out what the Homecoming venues say about accessibility on site:


The two conference hotels are approximately a quarter mile walk from the main venue. Those facilities describe their accessibility on their websites::

Participating in the Conference

  • Once on site, attendees will move from room to room at least once an hour both of the days.  We will be using virtually all of the rooms in the Indiana Historical Society maps at the bottom of this page. 

  • Plenary presenters will use microphones.

  • Breakout sessions will be set up theater style (rows of chairs). Presenters in the main auditorium will use microphones, however smaller rooms may not. 

  • Most will have PowerPoint presentations.  We have given presenters basic guidelines for making these presentations more accessible, but this will be new to most.

  • Some presenters may have audio and/or video as well. We will ask that any video be closed captioned.

  • Meals will be buffet lines with banquet-style (round) seating.

  • We expect over 300 people to attend, which means that there will be times that are busy, crowded and noisy.

  • Service animals will be welcome.

The Indiana Arts Commission is committed to inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility in our programming and services. Accessibility accommodations are available upon request in the registration form.
