This panel discussion of international museum practitioners from Asia, Europe, and the Americas will consider cultural attitudes toward older adults. Participants will learn ways museums can take a leading role in reducing ageism and explore how arts and care institutions create accessible spaces, programming, and communities for older adults with cognitive and physical disabilities.

Presentation Outcomes

  • Participants will gain both international insights and practical tools that address accessibility and inclusion in museum settings.
  • Participants will discuss and freshly vision the the challenges, solutions, and next actions for engaging older adults of all abilities in cultural programs.

For Presentation Team Planning: This session DOES have PowerPoint capacity.
