DC Arts & Access Network (DCAAN) is a consortium of arts leaders from the Washington, DC metropolitan area, who have a passion for making our cultural venues and programs accessible to people with disabilities. DCAAN was founded in November 2014 after a group of local arts administrators wanted to connect cultural venues with the disability community.

In January 2015, we were pleased to announce our Steering Committee. This group of volunteers from local arts institutions are dedicated to making the arts accessible for everyone.

Our community calendar lists performances, events, and programs in the Washington, DC area with accessibility services.  This includes audio description, open captioning, sign-interpreting, sensory friendly programs, touch tours, non-verbal ASL events, and professional development for arts administrators from theaters, museums, parks, zoos, and other cultural venues.
