Program image

This session offers an overview of accessibility and inclusive design with several exemplary case studies. Sina Bahram, leading accessibility consultant in the field and recognized expert on inclusive design, will introduce best practices and share insights he learned when creating the Canadian Museum for Human Rights’ approach to inclusive design in Winnipeg, which has won numerous awards for its accessibility. Sina will also share information about the development of the Coyote open platform, which offers an optimized workflow for image description that museums and others can implement. Nancy Proctor, Deputy Director for Digital Experience and Communications at the Baltimore Museum of Art and co-chair of Museums and the Web, will share her experiences with crowdsourcing verbal descriptions with and without technology. At both the BMA and the Smithsonian, she has found that audience participation in building an inclusive museum has led to greater community engagement and better programs and experiences for all visitors.
