Basics of Accessibility with Michael Gerr
What exactly is accessibility? What does it mean in the arts and culture sector? Michael Gerr talks about the UN human right of a person with disabilities not only to have access to cultural institutions, but also to be able to develop their own creative and intellectual potential. As he points out, ultimately everyone benefits from a barrier-free environment. The implementation of inclusive measures and the search for effective solutions are relevant to all parties. After all, it is the barriers that hinder.
