With many museum programs pivoting to virtual and online events, how can museums ensure their programs remain accessible and inclusive to all who want to participate? For those welcoming guests to our physical spaces, how can museums address accessibility while implementing safety features like masks, distancing, and the removal or limitation of items like touch interactives and museum-supplied audio equipment?
Join Megan Fitze and Molly Uline-Olmstead from Art Possible Ohio, the statewide service organization on the arts and disability, for a discussion about cultural accessibility in the era of COVID-19. This session will discuss strategies for making in-person experiences accessible and inclusive while still adhering to safety practices as well as ways to ensure that digital and virtual content can be experienced by all.
Bring your questions, ideas, and strategies for staying on the leading edge of accessibility and inclusivity during a global pandemic.
