This project is funded under the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme and aims at enhancing the CE cultural heritage, increasing the capacities of small and medium-sized museums, by making them accessible to a wider public of people with different kinds of disabilities.
The Central European Initiative – Executive Secretariat, coordinates a multifaceted network of 14 Museums, disability associations, academic representatives, training institutions and policy-makers from the Central Europe area, who will strive to define transnational high-level standards and ensure know-how transfer to guarantee accessibility to museums involved in the project. Guidelines will be developed to help organise accessible collections and exhibitions and a training handbook for museum operators will be made available.
An innovative promotional tool, the COME-IN! label will be developed to award museums complying with the established accessibility standards. The label will be promoted at transnational, national and local level to ensure its sustainability and transferability.
