Session 3: Inclusion through design & participation

How can cultural institutions make sure their inclusion strategy is actually inclusive?
Target group-centred design processes and offsite projects can do the trick. Including visitors in the developing phase offers a unique opportunity to gain valuable insights and new perspectives.  Outreach projects additionally help to engage communities beyond an institution’s normal visitor range.  Learn how co-creation and community-engaging programs have influenced the projects of our speakers.
