On 28 September, at 3.30 pm, we are launching a new website: Cultura Acessível (Accessible Culture). This project, developed with the exclusive support of the Millenniun bcp Foundation, has two main objectives:
• to bring together information on accessible cultural offer on a single website, frequently updated and easily searchable by people interested in accessibility services in Portugal’s cultural organisations (such as Audiodescription, Portuguese Sign Language, Relaxed Sessions, tactile materials, guides with pictograms, etc.).
• to give greater visibility to the consistent and permanent work of a number of Portuguese cultural organisations in relation to access, as well as to serve as an example and inspiration and to create motivation among organisations that do not invest in access yet.
The report on the meetings “Beyond the Physical: Barriers to Cultural Participation” is now available in English and in Portuguese. The mettings took place in 2017 with the support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
In this European Year of Cultural Heritage, Access Culture aims to discuss a heritage that is often not preserved and even hidden, ignored, silenced, inaccessible, uncomfortable, undervalued: the LGBTQI + (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex) heritage.
What heritage is this? Why highlight it? Read more
Our new digital publication is available to download in Portuguese and in English.
By registering the testimonies of collaborators, partners, trainees and members we aim to show what has been done and what has changed since this association was created in 2013. It is our way of saying Happy 2017!
