A new publication: Accessibility to Cultural Heritage - Nordic Perspectives
The publication "Accessibility to Cultural Heritage" (2009) results from the project "Accessibility to cultural heritage" (2007-2009) in which experts from the central heritage authorities in the Nordic countries, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers, examined together the consequences of the proposition that everybody should have access to cultural heritage.
The publication explores and discusses different ways of making the cultural heritage accessible to everyone - not only the obvious priorities of physical accessibility, but also accessibility in the form of understanding and experience. The purpose of the project was to increase the consciousness of the value choices, sharpen the arguments and reflections and find alternatives so that in the future the richness of heritage can be accessible for most people regardless of their circumstances and qualifications.
