Join us for a workshop on designing accessible school visits to and partnerships with cultural institutions. This Museum Access Consortium program aims to bring together teachers and museum educators to foster dialogue about how to design museum and theater visits that are accessible to students with a range of abilities and disabilities. This program will present case studies of accessible cultural programs for school groups across New York City and provide opportunities for both teachers and colleagues from cultural institutions to share information and resources.
