NEMO will present the free webinar 'Museums for All? Going beyond ramps and toilets to embrace access and inclusion for Deaf and disabled people' with facilitator Michèle Taylor on the 16 May 2018. Register before the 13 May to take part.
NEMO offers free webinars in English or French facilitated by different museum experts in Europe about diverse topics in the museum field to museum professionals in Europe and beyond.
The webinar will explore the Social Model of disability as the basis for a practical approach to welcoming Deaf and disabled people into our institutions. We will look at examples from across the world that demonstrate how disabled people are excluded and - more importantly - how barriers have been removed.
You will leave the webinar with ideas of straightforward and inexpensive actions that you can take to improve the experience that disabled visitors have in your museum, as well as the tools for planning more major changes.
Michèle Taylor has more than 25 years of experience working in arts and heritage, focusing particularly on disability issues. Michèle set up her own business in 1992 to work on that edge where disability and ‘the mainstream' meet, training and advising organisations on making their practices, policies and premises inclusive for disabled people. Since then, her practice has broadened to take good account of changes in the legislative approach and in recognition of equality and diversity principles as a whole.
