The Arts and 504, A Handbook for Accessible Arts Programming. Revised.
National Endowment for the Arts, Washington, DC.
This handbook is designed to assist arts organizations in complying with disability access regulations. It details how to include the needs of disabled people into programming efforts and also provides information on the Arts Endowment's 504 Regulation, which applies to federally funded organizations, and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which extends accessibility provisions to the private sector. This 100-page publication describes approaches to making arts programs accessible through audience development and staff training. It also discusses communications with people who have impaired mobility, hearing, sight, or learning disabilities. Other chapters look at compliance issues for specific arts disciplines--the visual arts, performing arts, literacy, media, and design arts. (EH)
