Learn how to better welcome older adults to our spaces.
As our audiences age, how are we as cultural institutions adapting to our audiences’ changing needs? One in two adults over the age of 75 has at least one disability, which could affect mobility, speech, hearing, vision and cognitive functioning. Due to acquiring the disability later in life, many older audience members may not identify as “disabled,” are unaware of what services may be available to them, or how to ask for them. Hear from panelists representing cultural spaces and partner organizations about how they are better considering older adults in their programming and services so our older audience members can continue to participate in our cultural spaces as they age, maximizing independence and choice.
