Museums and cultural centers accessible to all
Accessibility to art and culture requires a commitment from the museums and cultural centers of Catalonia in order to reduce physical, communication and cognitive barriers to economic ones. The objective is to promote universal accessibility and the diversity of audiences in our society.
Along these lines, more and more Catalan museums are promoting actions to work with accessibility for all people with the conviction that art facilitates integration and social transformation.
An example is the continuous improvement of facilities and building ramps and elevators skills. But it's not just about physical barriers.
Culture includes all the senses. Making it accessible does not only mean removing barriers to access buildings where it is exhibited. It means taking into account other difficulties, other deficits, other barriers.
The idea is that these centers provide all visitors with the possibility of participating in the artistic experience, to try to bring our heritage closer to everyone, without exclusion. Examples are experimental activities that allow the blind to perceive sculptural art through touch and the sighted to understand what perception can be had of sculptures without seeing.
These centers also have sensory resources for people with hearing disabilities and deaf people, such as transcripts of the audio guides in dossiers with written information, wheelchair services and lifts to facilitate the route of the exhibitions.
Access to culture is a fundamental right of people that must be enjoyed with the five senses and in an inclusive way .
