Accessibility to museums and their collections is a pursuit that is taken seriously by the majority of institutions. But are they getting it right and what new initiatives are being set up to improve things?
This training is designed to support the needs of professionals in order to understand the framework of inclusion applied to cultural institutions, such us museums, archives, libraries and so on. Will be provided six case studies where museums and heritage attractions have furthered their accessibility offer and successfully made themselves more inclusive. These include the National Museum of the Cinema, the Royal Palace, the Museum of Craft Art of Aosta Valley, the Gallery of modern art and the Contemporary Museum of Rivoli. In all of the case studies accessibility is tackled from different perspectives with the same goal: inclusion.
The training will include a deep overview to the United Nation Convention on the Rights of the persons with disabilities, with a particular focus to the article 30.
Cultural visits will be organized in the case studies museums.
