Access To Art

The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) recognizes and celebrates our visitors' diverse abilities and needs. To ensure art is accessible to all, we offer a variety of programs and services that support visits to the Gallery and participation in its activities. Access is about care; we hope to raise awareness about accessibility and we encourage all people to incorporate access in their everyday practice and lives. 

The AGO offers this platform for online programs and resources to all visitors and guests of the Gallery, creating an Access to Art Resource Hub for all our diverse communities:
