The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law designed to prevent discrimination and enable individuals with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of society. The Ohio Arts Council (OAC) is committed to ensuring ADA compliance and advocates for full access to the arts. Organizations that receive funding from the OAC must be fully accessible and inclusive of everyone. If you are unsure if your organization or facility is in compliance, please contact your regional program coordinator or the OAC's ADA Coordinator Kim Turner.
The OAC is equally committed to making sure our services are accessible to people with disabilities, including artists with disabilities. We work closely with the statewide organization on arts and disabilities, VSA Ohio.
