Changemaker Profile: Museum Access Consortium
The Museum Access Consortium (MAC) is led by an all-volunteer steering committee, comprised of museum and theater professionals, educators, disability advocates and consultants, and disability service providers with decades of experience training staff, launching and evaluating programs and advancing cultural inclusion in New York City. The MAC website includes a cultural calendar of accessible events across institutions and resources for designing and improving access programs.
MAC leads training sessions, conference sessions and grant-funded, cross-institutional projects on a variety of topics. We have worked with a wide range of audiences, including museum educators, certified teachers, summer camp staff, and after-school providers.
