CONFERENCE The Museum for All People: April 2-5, 2019

The Museum for All People:

Art, Accessibility and Social Inclusion

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, Madrid, April 2-5, 2019

The MUSACCES Consortium (UCM-UNED-AUM) cordially invites you to participate in the International Conference «The Museum for all people: art, accessibility and social inclusion», that will be held on April 2-5, 2019, in the city of Madrid.

The conference aims to provide a forum for exchange and debate among museum managers, professors, researchers, artists, students and cultural practitioners regarding improving access in art museums to all people, regardless of any specific needs they may have.

Participation in the conference will be open to contributions via a Call for papers. Moreover, the conference will have breakup sessions, specific seminars, concurrent activities and will feature internationally renowned speakers.

This International Conference seeks to become a forum for reflection on the conceptual problems in the definition of the museum for all. We are confident that the overlap between intellectual interdisciplinary borders (art history, cultural heritage, museology, art criticism, aesthetics, communication, education, tourism, technology, preservation and restoration, etc.) will allow us to propose strategies for cultural action devised to expand accessibility in the museum to all people.

Multimodal Approaches to Learning Conference

Multimodal Approaches to Learning International Conference, October 26-28, 2012, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Organized by Art Beyond Sight and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The conference addresses inclusive and multisensory learning environments and strategies, particularly in relation to the arts and museums. Our discussions will focus on experiences that involve sound, touch, movement, drama, olfactory and modes of proprioceptive learning. Multimodal learning and creative experiences are meaningful to all audiences including people with disabilities and people with different learning preferences.

Since 2005 this conference has become a forum for cross-disciplinary creative thinking and the exchange of ideas. We will continue to foster dialogue between such diverse disciplines as neuroscience, cognitive psychology, education, museum studies, disability and cultural studies, technology, architecture, product design, and media art. Conference participants and organizers aim to define a framework for engaging diverse audiences through multimodal experiences, and identify new trends and innovation in learning and museum practice.

The trademark of this conference has been its diverse cross-disciplinary audience that includes: Museum staff, art educators, teaching artists, special education teachers, therapists, new media artists, researchers, computer engineers and technology specialists, Universal Design advocates, architects, exhibit, and product designers, and graduate students.

Conference coordinator: Marie Clapot, 212 334 8723; aeb@artbeyondsight.org.
