Limited Capacity seats available

In honor of the disability rights movement and the 25th anniversary of the passage of the ADA, join the Museum Access Consortium to learn how art museums, historic sites, zoos, performing arts venues, theaters, and parks have collaborated across institutions and with disability communities to create innovative and inclusive facilities and programs for all visitors. From the impact of multi-sensory engagement on visitors with memory loss and their loved ones to low and high-tech approaches that have been effective in engaging people who have autism, this session will feature case studies from New York’s cultural institutions in efforts to spark creative thinking and inspire dialogue amongst presenters and attendees about what each of us can do to shape a culture of inclusion for people of all abilities, across the travel industry and beyond.

About Museum Access Consortium (MAC): MAC is an association that regularly hosts professional development workshops and offers a network of mutual support to help practitioners engage with disability advocates and people who have disabilities to learn about, implement, and strengthen best practices for access and inclusion in cultural facilities of all types throughout the New York metro area and beyond.
