Access Manual

Fifty-four million Americans with disabilities and 37 million older adults (aged 65 and up)—with $188 billion in disposable income—are ready and willing to participate in accessible arts and cultural activities across the country.

Design for Accessibility: A Cultural Administrator's Handbook is a how-to reference and resource guide for integrating older adults and people with disabilities into all aspects of an arts organization—from planning and design to marketing and technical assistance.

This publication was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and MetLife Foundation, in partnership with NASAA and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
