Access Advisory Group

The DAM's Access Advisory Group (AAG) is comprised of individuals who can address the barriers faced in attending museums. The group consists of advocates for multiple disability communities who meet regularly to provide specific input on accessibility in the museum. The members are Denver-based individuals, businesses, and groups who either experience these barriers themselves, who have knowledge of these barriers in their roles as support workers, or who are working in the accessibility field. The AAG supports the DAM's initiatives to be transparent and accountable in the evolving practice of building a fully accessible and inclusive museum environment.
