Access A.R.T./New York is our program to offer support to member theatres that are beginning or developing accessibility programs within their own companies. Through new and expanded programs, including a partnership with Hands On and microgrants to support ASL theatrical interpretation, workshops and educational programming on accessibility, cohort learning opportunities, and accessibility consulting, we hope to shift New York towards a more welcoming and accessible place for all artists, staff, and audiences.
