The basics of accessibility in the context of public relations and museum management

A visit to a museum or gallery can be enriching and stimulating and needs to be an accessible experience for all people. In the four videos of this course, six experts from the field of art and inclusion give an introduction to the concept of inclusion, the importance of accessibility in digital space, stereotypical (visual) language and the identification of barriers. The combination of professional knowledge and private experience provides a good insight into the role of inclusion in the arts and culture sector.

The tutorial offers a basic understanding of inclusion in the museum sector. The tutors have a disability themselves and/or are intensely studying different ways of providing barrier-free access and participation in art institutions. You can learn from the expertise and the personal stories in order to improve your own handling of and communication with people with disabilities.

  • introduce you to basic definitions and important concepts of inclusion

  • inform you about the arts and culture-related rights of people with disabilities
