Christena Gunther

Steering Committee Board President, Assistant Director of Disability Services, Adler University

Bringing Chicago together around the intersection of disability and the arts was Christena Gunther’s main aim as she started CCAC in 2013. Having over a decade of experience in cultural accessibility from a variety of cultural organisations, including the Metropolitan Museum and Lincoln Center, she currently serves as Assistant Director of Disability Services at Adler University. Thanks to her brother who has Down syndrome, cultural accessibility became her passion as they visited museums and attended plays together. Christena speaks internationally about cultural accessibility, especially the importance of establishing a local access knowledge network in one’s own community.
