COME-IN! Inclusive Museums in Europe Project

12/04/2018 | 0 comments

The COME-IN! Project aims at valorizing the Central European cultural heritage, making smaller museums, accessible to a wider public of people with disabilities.

The project is funded by the Interreg Central Europe Programme of the European Union with a budget of 2.7 Million EURO.

Main objectives

  • COME-IN! will coordinate a multi-faceted network of museums, disability associations, academic representatives, training institutions and policy makers, that will jointly define an innovative strategic approach on how to promote the accessibility to museums - in order to make them more attractive for the public.
  • Transnational high-level standards will be discussed and established and know-how transfer structured.
  • The COME-IN! guidelines for organising an accessible collection/exhibition and the training handbook for museum operators will be elaborated and tested along its network.
  • Pilot actions and training to operators will be performed and their results in terms of increased visibility studied.
  • Based on the gained experience, an innovative promotional tool, the COME-IN! label for awarding museums complying with its accessibility standards, will be developed and initially conferred to the museums of the network.
  • The COME-IN! label will be promoted at transnational, national and local level, in central Europe and beyond, thus guaranteeing its sustainability and transferability.
