Accessible Culture & Training Erasmus+ Project

act erasmus

About the overall project:

Accessible Culture & Training is a project funded by the ERASMUS + Programme of the EU.

The project ACT proposes the definition of a new professional profile, that of the “Media Accessibility Expert/Manager for the Scenic Arts”, and also the various types of training activities associated to this professional.

The project focuses on promoting equal opportunities and accessibility to cultural events (scenic arts) across countries and languages searching to establish and qualify the profile of accessibility expert to empower all citizens and especially people with disabilities.

About the collaboration:

One of the activities in ACT is to organize a hackathon. Some meetings will take place in advance to prepare participants for the final day. M:A:D Interaction will collaborate as consultant and workshop facilitator with the aims to design new prototypes.
These activities will take place at ESTRUCH Sabadell, Barcelona
