What is CAFE?
Cultural Accessibility Forum & Exchange is a dialogue series driven by Art-Reach. CAFE brings cultural organizations together with members of the disability and low-income communities to focus on improving cultural access for everyone.
This forum addresses issues of cultural accessibility in order to:
- Enhance accessible accommodations offered by the Greater Philadelphia cultural community
- Encourage arts providers within the sector to continue their efforts in making experiences accessible to patrons with disabilities
- Expand awareness of the need for such efforts
CAFE was launched in 2015, during the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act being signed into law. Art-Reach believes that more can be done when we work together, and learn from one another. These forums invite the arts community and members of the disability community to share best practices, learn about advances in the field and hear from thought leaders in cultural accessibility from across the country.
