ARCHES Project – Final event

Share

ARCHESARCHES, Accessible Resources for Cultural Heritage EcoSystems, is a 3 year European project with the aim to make art and cultural experience accessible for all, through the development of technological solutions that improve access to culture.

The project is arriving at the end of its intensive activity and it will present the results of its research at the  final event in Madrid on Thursday 7 November.

 

The results of the project are guidelines and publications, apps and advanced technologies: tactile reliefs made by state-of-the-art 3D modelling techniques, apps and games for smartphones and tablets, sign-language avatars.

The participatory research groups were the core of the project: more than 200 disabled people together with technology companies, universities and museums, developed and tested the solutions providing their experiences and suggestions to improve the applications.

For this purpose over 160 sessions were held in London, Vienna, Oviedo and Madrid.

 

THE MUSEUM IS FOR ALL!

During its 3 years of activity, ARCHES Project intended “to challenge perceptions of inclusion and exclusion, moving beyond the notion of disability categories and working instead with people’s access preferences.

 

The ARCHES final event will take place at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum, Madrid, the 7th November 2019.
