Cultural heritage is part of our legacy of the past, which is why it must be preserved and is destined to be a source of experiences for all those who use it, enjoy it or visit it. Enjoying it is a right for all people, regardless of their needs for support to do so.

During the conference, we will reflect on how to make cultural heritage accessible so that it can be enjoyable by ALL. Our main objective will be to provide knowledge, strategies and tools with which to promote the design and planning of actions, events or adaptations in spaces that allow everyone to take advantage of them under equal conditions and with the same opportunities.

This conference is aimed at professionals, associations and companies related to the cultural and tourism sector, as well as anyone interested in going deeper into the subject and facilitating the inclusion of people with disabilities from a cognitive and sensory approach.

Guided by professionals from the accessibility and disability sector, companies, experts, museums and associations dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities, we will propose a participative meeting point in which to share experiences between the different speakers and those attending. And finally, we will seek to promote good practices that guarantee an accessible and inclusive cultural heritage.
