Frequently Asked Questions
Question: I’ve been contacted by a constituent asking for help in making their arts programs more accessible to older adults. What are some good resources to recommend?
Answer: The National Endowment for the Arts Office of AccessAbility helps the cultural community make the arts accessible for people with disabilities, older adults, veterans, and people living in institutions. They offer technical assistance and provide a variety of informational resources, including an arts and aging resource list and a monograph on best practices. Those and other resources are available on-line via: http://www.arts.gov/resources/Accessibility/index.html.
NASAA’s Design for Accessibility: A Cultural Administrator’s Handbook is another good tool. This how-to reference and resource guide can help arts constituents integrate older adults and people with disabilities into all aspects of an arts organization, from planning and design to marketing and technical assistance.
