Arts & Accessibility

Arts and Accessibility Research Group brings together faculty from the disciplines of art, music, theatre, dance, fashion, public health, nursing and the physical and biological sciences whose research focuses on issues of accessibility.  Examples of projects include the effects of dance on mobility in patients with Parkinson’s Disease, the effects of music on children with autism, and “(Dis)Abled Beauty,” an exhibition of uniquely designed devices used in physical impairments such as mobility, dexterity and deafness.
