- Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium Survey: With support from the FAR Fund, the Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium’s (MAC) “Mapping Virtual Access in Cultural Institutions” project has been documenting current access practices through interviews, research, and now a survey.

All NYC cultural organizations are encouraged to complete the survey by January 22. Contact Bojana Coklyat at email@example.com for a Microsoft Word version or to complete the survey via email.
