Ensuring that the programming supported by the Cultural & Heritage Commission is available to the widest possible audience is among the highest of Commission priorities. This includes access for people with disabilities.

The Commission is dedicated to assisting the Cumberland County cultural community both fulfill its obligations and bring the arts to all people. All venues utilized by the Commission are wheelchair accessible. Assistive services such as sign language interpreting, audio description, and open captioning are available upon request provided 15 days in advance. Large print publications are available at all times. Please contact the Cumberland County Department of Planning and Development at (856) 453-2175 for further accessibility details.
