Arts and Culture: Accessible Practices


National

Association of Science-Technology Centers: Accessible Practices Resource Center ASTC, via their Accessible Practices Resource Center seeks to support museums in their ongoing efforts to open their doors to all people, and specifically to people with disabilities and their families and friends.

National Arts and Disability Center (NADC) is the national information dissemination, technical assistance and referral center specializing in the field of arts and disability. The NADC is dedicated to promoting the full inclusion of children and adults with disabilities into the visual-, performing-, media, and literary-arts communities. Its resource directories, annotated bibliographies, related links and conferences serve to advance artists with disabilities and accessibility to the arts. The NADC is a project of the University of California, at Los Angeles (UCLA), Tarjan Center for Developmental Disabilities (formerly University Affiliated Program).

Smithsonian Guidelines for Accessible Exhibition Design is a document created by Smithsonian Accessibility Program that offers insight into their innovative accessibility practices. They strive to "invent" accessible solutions where there are none. This document will provide an overview of both the accessibility guidelines and design tools.
