Produce accessible events with our equipment.
Want to produce accessible events, but don’t have the budget for equipment? We offer free short-term equipment loans to Chicago-area cultural organizations. Learn more about how the equipment works in your venue and begin your outreach efforts today. Budget for your own equipment in the future, after you’ve demonstrated to colleagues that accessibility efforts are possible in your own organization.
If you’re from a cultural organization in the Chicago area, fill out a request below. Email Equip@CulturalAccessCollab.org for any questions, or you can also check out our archived Equipment Loan Program How-To program on our YouTube Page.
Please note that as of 2020, all Equipment Loan pick up and drop off is at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, located at 2430 N. Cannon Drive.
Our Accessible Equipment Loan Program is made possible in part by the PERT Foundation and Michael and Mona Heath Fund. Special thanks to Chicago Academy of Sciences / Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
“[Cultural Access Collab] has provided invaluable support through free workshops, organizational tools, equipment loans, and always being a safe and welcoming space to ask for help.
The arts community in Chicago is becoming more for people with disabilities (and everyone) each day thanks to the amazing work [Cultural Access Collab] does!”– Theater Administrator
