Culture for all, Culture of all

The call "Culture for all, culture of all", promoted by the City of Parma in partnership with the 'Institute for the artistic, cultural and natural heritage of Emilia-Romagna, aims at promoting the expansion of the use of museums, through the development of audience engagement and development strategies.

The course - training, call, experimentation - is developed with the collaboration of the Table for Disabilities of the Municipality of Parma and with the scientific coordination of Promo PA Foundation.

In particular, "Culture for all" aims to make museums accessible to categories of public such as young people and families, elderly and foreigners, persons with physical or mental disabilities, stimulating the design and development of services or products that can be modeled and scalable, inspired by 4all design. At a time when the function of museums is changing, passing from places of conservation and protection exclusively to meeting spaces and participation increasingly attentive to visitors and the importance of living a real experience in art, the call aims to stimulate creative people to present solutions that can increase the usability of museums and promote the inclusion of the public, proposing new forms of approach to cultural fruition, in particular by creating tools and paths that bring those who can not access to museums or due to physical limitations or for a greater limitation in understanding, due to language, cognitive, sensory barriers.
