CALL FOR (VIRTUAL) INTERNS for MUSEUM FOR ALL project
In July 2011, ArteConTacto and the Design for All Foundation signed an agreement to jointly develop the Museumforall.eu network.
While ArteConTacto works to facilitate access to art and knowledge for all, including visually impaired people, the Foundation has been working for many years to establish the Design for All principle in all areas of life.
The purpose of museumforall.eu is, on the one hand, to generate existing information surrounding European art and cultural centres, and, on the other, to develop tools and methods to bring culture closer to people and to promote access to culture by everyone. It will also be a European platform which will highlight good practice and draw attention to those centres and museums seeking excellence through Design for All. With this new project with ArteConTacto, the Design for All Foundation intends to further and reinforce one of its fundamental objectives: that any person, whatever their personal characteristics, may enjoy, experience and understand settings and activities within the areas of leisure and culture.
Please apply to touch(at)artecontacto.org
Successful candidates will leave us with a recommendation letter and useful knowledge in the up and coming field of accessibility in culture.
Please have a look at our blog http://museumforallblog.wordpress.com (still in test phase) and the partner organization’s websites http://artecontacto.org and http://www.designforall.org
