Have Your Say!

We’re working in collaboration with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences to develop their Disability Inclusion and Action Plan. We want to make sure the voices of people with disability come to the fore. We’d appreciate it if you could take five minutes to answer a few questions by 30 April.
