Congratulations! You now understand the tools available to create access to the arts for people with visual impairments and other disabilities. You are ready to plan an accessibility program for your museum or arts organization.
Here are the steps we suggest:
- Assess the resources you already have at your disposal. You may have found that you are familiar with many of the tools discussed and already use them in your programming.
- Gather together a team of experienced advisors who are familiar with disability and accessibility as well as interested in art.
- With this Advisory Board, work to set short- and long-term goals for making your institution and programming accessible to visitors, staff and funders who are blind or visually impaired.
- Using these goals, you can then launch a pilot program and begin welcoming a new audience to your museum.
