INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS

Since September 2015, Accès Culture has been part of the European Theatres For All project, in partnership with the Extremadura Regional Council (Spain), the Education and Culture Department of the University of Wolverhampton (England) and the Province of Forlì-Cesena in the Region of Émilie-Romagne (Italy), the project leader in the “Europe Creative, Culture” programme.

The European Theatres For All project aims to develop audio description and theatre accessibility for visually impaired and blind people in the 4 partner regions. This project focuses on training and improving the skills of audio describers, exchanging good practices and improving accessibility management to facilitate audio description services and strengthen transnational cooperation.

Accès Culture also presented its initiatives and working methods in 2014 at the Centrum Kultury Wroclaw-Zachod (in Poland). The partnership continued in 2016, with joint participation in the “Culture is for everyone” conference for international organisations working on cultural accessibility.

On 19 May 2016, the Connection Foundation invited Accès Culture to speak at “Deaf-blind in the modern world: overcoming the limits of possible”, an international conference in Moscow.
