Our objective with the workshops is to reach museum professionals other European countries. We have selected one museum each in Germany, Italy and France. Through a collaboration with the EU-funded COME-IN! project, we are now able to feature two additional workshops, one in Croatia and one in Slovenia. These workshops will be complemented by a ‘How-To-Guide’ (80 pages) for each workshop participant.

The aim of the workshops and the publication is to enable practitioners in museums to work towards a museum for all by providing them with an extensive description of participatory activities you can undertake.

Workshop for Spanish and Iberoamerican museum professionals

13.6.2019, Lázaro Galdiano Museum, Madrid


This workshop is the first in a series of events to disseminate the results of a three-year research within the framework of the ARCHES project.
The visit to the museum should be a time of learning, of discovery.

The workshop is based on our work with four participatory research groups in four European cities: London, Madrid, Oviedo and Vienna. Each of these participatory research groups included between fifteen and thirty-five people with a wide range of access preferences often associated with sensory and/or cognitive impairments.
