Kajaani Art Museum has prepared an accessibility plan for 2017–2022. We want to serve the public and surrounding communities by investing in developing accessibility in the long term. Outi Salonlahti and Sari Salovaara, experts from the Culture for All Service, have been involved in drawing up the plan. The implementation has been supported by the Art Promotion Centre Finland.
