Abstract: 

To create accessibility art, there are many kinds of common attitudes that have an influence on this creativeness. Are we ready to welcome a range of different visitors? Keeping an open attitude to diversity is the key to development when we want to welcome new visitor groups. Art, in its many forms is usually visual and is made for looking - even the internet which is mostly visual.
