MoMA is committed to making its collection and programming accessible to all audiences. Staff and educator training is an essential aspect of this goal.
Disability equality training resources
MoMA is committed to disability equality, and we work to remove physical, programmatic, and attitudinal barriers within the Museum. At the core of this work are disability equality workshops, in which staff reflect on their own experiences, and learn to identify and transform language, attitudes, and behaviors that negatively impact visitors with disabilities. An important aspect of these workshops is listening to disabled visitors who share a passion for art.
