Breaking Barriers: A Cultural Accessibility Project is a partnership between Art Access and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums to provide disability accessibility training and mentorship to our state’s cultural institutions. Funded in part by the Katherine W. & Ezekiel R. Dumke Foundation, Breaking Barriers will consist of training workshops for cultural organizations. Workshop content will focus on accessibility needs for people with the following disabilities:

  • Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing/Deaf-Blind
  • Blind and Low Vision
  • Physical and Mobility
  • Neurodiverse and Sensory
  • Developmental
  • Learning

Organizational participants in the Breaking Barriers project will receive 12 hours of instruction provided by Art Access staff. Through this work, participants will develop accessibility plans that address how to make their physical sites and organizations more accessible to the disability community.

All training will take place virtually.
