Survey Underway to Highlight Experiences and Preferences for Virtual Access to Museum Programming

The Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium (MAC) invites museum visitors with disabilities to participate in a survey they are conducting to highlight the experiences and preferences of people with disabilities. The Consortium will then develop guidance for cultural organizations “about how to navigate virtual programming in the next phase of the pandemic.” MAC points out that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected cultural institutions across the nation and everywhere, causing “a massive need for change.” Many have connected with digital technology “that the disability community has been advocating for well before this crisis…and (MAC recognizes) that there is work to be done to make digital platforms accessible to all.” The deadline to complete the survey is July 29, 2022.
