The Arts & Culture Accessibility Cooperative (ACAC) seeks to create a resource for the community that will allow us to continually move forward through discussions and committed work to create a more inclusive arts and culture scene for our region. We believe that Saint Louis’s arts and culture community is for everyone and that everyone deserves access to Saint Louis’s vibrant cultural landscape. Our mission is to empower our community to become more accessible to people with disabilities as visitors, patrons, artists, employees, and volunteers.

The ACAC is a volunteer-based group that brings together cultural practitioners, people with disabilities, and disability advocates to share experiences and learn from each other to create a more inclusive community. We are dedicated to increasing arts accessibility in the Saint Louis area and to facilitate a dynamic cooperative that strives to advance accessibility and inclusion across the Greater Saint Louis Area.


How can we create an inclusive environment for people with disabilities within our community's arts and cultural spaces?
