COME-IN! - Cooperating for Open access to Museums – towards a widEr Inclusion
The project COME-IN! (Cooperating for Open access to Museums – towards a widEr INclusion) is funded under the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme and aims at enhancing the CE cultural heritage, increasing the capacities of small and medium size museums, by making them accessible to a wider public of people with different kinds of disabilities.
The Central European Initiative – Executive Secretariat, in its capacity as Lead Partner, 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.
