Creating Accessible Cultural Spaces

Guide to Getting Started

A Black man using a wheelchair looks at photos in a modern art gallery. A white woman stands behind him, hands resting on the chair's push handles. Both wear masks.

Event Description: We all want our programs, our spaces, and our online events to be accessible to as many folks as possible, but if you are just getting started, you might feel out of your depth! This session will provide a basic introduction to the world of accessibility in cultural spaces. We’ll talk about where to begin, what are some affordable next steps we can take to welcome our visitors, and how to implement services such as captioning, sign language interpretation, and audio description. There will be ample time to ask questions!
