Barcelona is to host the 5th International Congress on Education and Accessibility to Museums and Heritage, organised by the Museu Marítim de Barcelona, the City Council of Barcelona, through the ICUB (Barcelona Institute of Culture) and the Municipal Institute for People with Disabilities and the Agency of Cultural Heritage of the Catalan Ministry of Culture. Under the title of Planning and management.
Access to content we will be inviting you to participate, debate, exchange ideas and reflect on the idea of the managing of accessibility to cultural institutions as being a shared responsibility, in addition to a commitment to changing the conception of content, so as to create content that is attractive for everybody.
We encourage everyone to take part in this new International Congress on Education and Accessibility to Museums and Heritage, and we will be expecting you next June in Barcelona. Finally, you can follow all the latest news on the Congress through this website and you can interact using the hashtag #congresoaccesibilidad
We shall be reflecting on plans for accessibility, responsibilities, transversality in accessibility management, as well as many other matters.
The big unresolved issue: it’s no longer simply a question of using big lettering and bright colours; there is also a need for content that is attractive to all.
Devoted to an examination of accessibility to Catalan museums and a presentation of some of the many projects currently being executed.
