TDF Access for NYC Theatre Mission

The City of New York estimates that there are nearly one million New York City residents who self-identify as living with one or more with disabilities and millions more visit the City each year. TDF Access for NYC Theatre will help to provide an equal theatregoing opportunity for these individuals by ensuring that New York City nonprofit theatres have the resources needed to establish and maintain accessibility services for their productions.

TDF Access for NYC Theatre’s primary focus will be on helping theatres achieve sustainability in providing access services for the long term rather than easy solutions for an individual performance that requires accommodation. The aim will be to implement non-architectural access for people with hearing and vision loss as well as individuals on the autism spectrum or with other developmental disabilities, rather than assisting facilities with building design for mobility access. By the time the ADA celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2020, the Consortium will help make New York City truly the most theatre accessible city in the world by ensuring that its nearly one million residents who self-identify as living with one or more disabilities can participate fully as audience members.
