Learn the latest accessibility trends & best practices at the Cultural Accessibility Conference

Art-Reach Cultural Accesibility conference sept 20-22

Registration is currently open.


Art-Reach is excited to host the 4th annual Cultural Accessibility Conference from September 20-22, 2022!

This online conference engages professionals to establish a better understanding of accessibility and inclusion within their art, culture, and public garden networks. The conference covers topics that will help organizations build tools, knowledge, and an international network of allies and resources. Sessions engage variable learners and celebrate inclusive learning methods – drawing attention to how this work brings joy, fulfillment, and purpose to our lives.

Many of our presenters tried new things in 2021 and braved new territory for their organizations. By building stronger ties to diverse communities and partnerships, these presenters deeply impacted colleagues and stakeholders. We cannot wait to share these sessions with you!
