Pilot Inclusion

The Klassik Stiftung Weimar is working closely with three museums and exhibition venues to develop a modular presentation concept on inclusion and handicap accessibility at exhibitions and collections. Each project at the respective institution will present examples of how differences can be taken into account and cultural participation can be improved for all visitors. The projects, scheduled to run for three years (2015–2017), not only aim to develop new models, but also define the internal processes necessary to implement them.

The Weimar project will develop a module for the Castle Museum which addresses the needs of guests who require seating, while at the same time, provide information about the epochal upheaval around 1800 through the example of seating furniture.

The Bundeskunsthalle Bonn is the project coordinator of »Pilot Inclusion«. The partners include the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg and the Städtische Museen Freiburg with additional support provided by the Bundesverband Museumspädagogik e.V. and the association »Blinde und Kunst«. »Pilot Inclusion« is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Art and the Media in accordance with a resolution passed by the German Bundestag, the Aktion Mensch and the Kämpgen Stiftung.
