Like all other businesses and non-profits, arts organizations have a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that their programs are accessible to people of all abilities.

Accessibility means striving to provide all people with an equal opportunity to experience the programs and services offered by an organization. It also means providing any reasonable modification or accommodation necessary to achieve equal opportunity.
