Accessibility is increasingly becoming a priority at cultural institutions. Museums are responding by incorporating accessibility into planning and operations and creating accessibility-focused positions. In this session, presenters will share stories and tips on building an accessibility initiative from the ground up, gaining staff buy-in, and responding to the growth and needs of audiences with disabilities through staff training and programming. Participants will gain ideas to apply to institutions of all sizes and types and have opportunities to share experiences.
