The aim of ACCEASY project is to promote an inclusive and accessible European heritage for people with intellectual disabilities and/or cognitive difficulties.
Lack of accessibility of heritage from a cognitive point of view is due to the use of a complex language, to the lack of consideration of the needs of people with intellectual disabilities and/or cognitive difficulties and to a lack of vindication of the right of these people to fully participate in social life.
The aim of the project is raise awareness of the importance of European cultural heritage, open the cultural heritage to people with intellectual disabilities and use cultural heritage as an instrument to promote social inclusion.
In the frame of the project we want:
- To promote the use of accessible communication systems.
- To sensitize and raise awareness.
- To claim cognitive accessibility as a right.
