Quality training, quality service in accessible live events

The ACT project for its final conference (ACT Multiplier Event E1) is teaming up with the Unlimited! Symposium, which will take place in Barcelona on June 6th 2018, at the Residència d’Investigadors (Hospital, 64, 08001 Barcelona). Google Maps link.

The ACT project is working on the definition of a new professional profile, that of the “Media Accessibility Expert/Manager for the Scenic Arts”, and also on the various types of qualifications required for this profession in order to provide high quality training for professionals in the field. Unlimited!, held for the first time at the University of Antwerp in 2016, focuses on accessibility services in live events, both from a professional and research angle.
