Carrie McGee from MoMA New York

Engaging Possibility: Access Programs at MoMA

A Public Lecture by Carrie McGee, Associate Educator for Community and Access Programs, Department of Education at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.

Carrie McGee and her colleagues at The Museum of Modern Art have won international respect for their unique efforts to make the MoMA’s extensive resources, collection and programs accessible to visitors with disabilities.

Their award-winning Access Programs serve diverse audiences including individuals with physical, developmental or learning disabilities; hospitalised children and adults; home-bound individuals; blind and partially sighted visitors; cancer survivors; individuals with mental illness; and people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.

The programs are founded on the belief that engagement with art can impact health and wellbeing, and on the understanding that cultural institutions have a unique opportunity because of their capacity to facilitate that engagement.

In this lecture Carrie will discuss the development and outcomes of MoMA’s programs, including the world- renowned MoMA Alzheimer’s Project, in order to validate the notion that high quality arts programming positively impacts the physical, intellectual and emotional lives of those who participate.

The Salek Minc Lecture Series

Salek Minc (1905-1983), for whom this lecture is named, was a prominent Perth doctor, collector and supporter of the visual arts. He was much beloved by many friends and students, and his enthusiasm for the arts did much to foster their development in Western Australia.
