Exhibition "Museum to Scale"

 

 

OPEN, in collaboration with researchers from UAntwerpen, is carrying out pilot studies into the inclusive accessibility of museums for the blind and visually impaired. In collaboration with interest groups, experiments are being organised with the aim of optimising accessibility for blind and visually impaired people as well as for their companions. Within this framework, research is being conducted with the Museum to Scale, an exhibition on the city campus of UAntwerp (building R), the first results of which will be available in June 2020.
In addition, OPEN is making an inventory of initiatives and technologies that exist in Flanders that enable inclusive accessibility in museums, performing arts and live events.
