Cultural Access

What is Cultural Access?

Access to cultural events and exhibits is an important part of making the arts available to all people. We have listed some important resources here to help presenting venues (museums, galleries, theaters, etc) make their facilities accessible for people with disabilities.

Since we do not own our performance and exhibit venues, we rely on our valued partners in communities throughout the state when we produce an exhibit or performance. If you have an accommodation request or special need (e.g. dietary restrictions, Braille, large print materials, etc.) for one of our Arts for All Kentucky sponsored programs, please submit your request in writing 21 days prior to the event (so there is time to make those arrangements with our venue partners). Less than 21 days in advance, accommodations cannot be guaranteed. If you wish to discuss your accommodations with us, please contact Catie Robertson, 270-792-0023 or send an email to [email protected]. Thanks!
