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.
Therefore, we have designed “Big Mike’s chin”, an online participatory activity, designed to make cultural heritage accessible for people with different sensory and cognitive abilities, that will help us to reflect on how to make cultural heritage accessible and enjoyable by ALL.
We will travel through time to learn how we have evolved, both biologically, and in the use of technologies and arts. To do this we will use skulls, illustrations, sounds of tools and instruments. In addition, we try to imagine how we will continue to evolve in the future.
The activity is aimed to be viewed by 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.
After viewing the activity, we will propose a participative meeting point in which to share experiences, select good practices and find key elements that guarantee an accessible and inclusive cultural heritage.
