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.
Molly Uline-Olmstead is the Executive Director of Art Possible Ohio. She believes that creativity is essential to the human experience and that everyone should have access to and be included in creative spaces.
Megan Fitze is the Director of Programs for Art Possible Ohio. She has worked in the nonprofit arts sector for over 15 years and is extremely dedicated to providing accessible experiences in creative spaces.
