Inclusion in culture and media – dossier including a feature on grauwert consultancy
The dossier “Inclusion in culture and media” recently published by the German Culture Council contains a feature on grauwert consultancy. In an interview, Mathias Knigge explains how improved accessibility can create a new level of quality in cultural experiences. Through consultation and overarching concepts, cumbersome and often unattractive solutions can be avoided. The added value created in this process benefits all visitors and whole audiences. This is where the services of grauwert come in.
Olaf Zimmermann, Managing Director of the German Culture Council: “More inclusion in culture and media isn’t about doing people with accessibility issues a special favour. It is about implementing a basic human right, the right to participate. More inclusion requires more quality at different levels, and it benefits the whole of society.”
The dossier is available through the German Culture Council’s website: www.kulturrat.de
The publication will be presented on 19 November, accompanied by the film „Shot in the Dark“ (cinema filmkunst 66, Berlin). Director and cameraman Frank Amann portrays three blind or visually impaired photographers, Pete Eckert, Bruce Hall and Sonia Soberats, whose photographs are also shown in the dossier.
