Welcome to ARCHES!

ARCHES stands for “Accessible Resources for Cultural Heritage EcoSystems”. With the support of the European Union, ARCHES has brought together disabled people, technology companies, universities and museums. Together, they develop and test technological solutions to improve access to culture.

The core of the project are four participatory research groups. They have been meeting in six museums, during more than two years. Their experiences and suggestions help researchers develop applications, games, sign language avatars and multisensory materials for museums. Once the research is complete, you can use these solutions as well.

Please have a look at the above introduction video, and at the video about the research methodology, below. They are subtitled and translated into sign language. Please note that these videos, and all other content is also available in German and Spanish.

You can also browse our other menus, to find the dates of our workshops, get to know the people behind ARCHES and download useful materials.

Please feel free to contact us to find out more about the project.
