Context

Imagine a Quebec where museums are welcoming places for people of all abilities. Join us on December 7, 2022 for a discussion on the future of accessibility in our museums. This invitation is open to researchers, museum professionals, partners and anyone interested in the subject.

The meeting will begin with the presentation of the results of a participatory research project entitled “Portrait de l’accessibilité universelle dans les musées du Québec “* (Portrait of universal accessibility in Quebec museums).

At the heart of the discussion will be the progress made in integrating universal accessibility into these establishments, and the challenges that remain. We will highlight the opportunities that remain to go even further in the quest for a museum future that is truly accessible to all.

Universal accessibility, as a fundamental concept, aims to create products, services and environments that enable everyone to participate in activities independently, thus guaranteeing equitable opportunities.

*This study is being carried out by a research team from the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) and McGill University, in collaboration with the Société des musées du Québec, the Musée national des beaux-arts de Québec, the Regroupement des organismes de personnes handicapées de la région de la Capitale-Nationale (ROP 03), Kéroul, the Association québécoise pour le loisir des personnes handicapées (AQLPH) and the Office des personnes handicapées du Québec (OPHQ).
