The Museum Access Consortium is a network of museum professionals and members of the disability community based in the New York Metro area who are dedicated to improving accessibility at cultural institutions for people of all abilities. For more than a decade, we’ve provided opportunities for museum professionals to share their best practices and learn from one another.
We’re building a new website that will include a variety of resources and additional information. In the meantime, to learn more about how you can improve accessibility at your cultural institution, get connected with MAC for information, support, and ideas in any or all of the following ways:
Attend MAC Workshops: MAC regularly organizes workshops and events that address topics ranging from, “Welcoming People with Alzheimer’s Disease to Your Museum,” to “Perspectives on Autism: Art and Access,” to “Revised ADA Regulations.” In our efforts to share what we learn, we have posted video and audio recordings and transcripts of many of these workshops so that colleagues may use them for trainings at their own museums.
Friend us on Facebook or Follow us on Twitter: Join our Facebook community to share access-related ideas, best practices, and research with one another or follow MAC on Twitter to stay on top of the latest access-related news.
Sign up for MAC’s e-blast: Sign up for MAC’s e-blast by sending your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org for updates on access-related events and programs at cultural institutions and accessibility organizations.
Be informed, connected, and inspired through the Museum Access Consortium, and stay tuned for updates on upcoming workshops!
