Disability and Inclusion

Disability and Inclusion

Disability and Inclusion: Resources for Museum Studies Programs was developed by Art Beyond Sight (ABS), working for over 25 years to make the arts and culture accessible to all. In New York, ABS works with museums and schools.

The site is not a curriculum or a pre-packaged course of study. It is a resource bank of articles, videos, photos, case studies, activities, and links that Museum Studies faculty can use within existing courses. The goal is to dramatically improve how museum studies programs teach about disability and inclusion.

The broad topic is how future museum professionals – curators, designers, educators, and managers – can learn to create accessible programs and exhibits for all visitors. Our hope is that university instructors:

  1. learn from the material
  2. use it in lectures and class discussions
  3. use it to create assignments for students.
