Accessibility trainings for cultural events and organizations in Helsinki, 29th & 30th November
ARMAS welcomes you to learn about accessibility and diversity of culture together with other cultural events, workers, and organizations. The training focuses on the accessibility of culture from the perspective of aging people, and it is organized by the Culture for All Service.
The training is free of charge and aimed towards smaller Helsinki-based cultural initiatives who wish to work on the accessibility of their own activities.
Two trainings with the same content will be held on consecutive days at the Cable Factory in Helsinki. You can choose either of the two dates.
- Workshop 1: Tuesday 29.11. at 9:30–14:15
- Workshop 2: Wednesday 30.11. at 9:30 –14:15
Venue: Meeting room at café Konttori, Cable Factory.
Address: Kaapeliaukio, 00180 Helsinki. Accessible route to Konttori is through the gate on Tallberginkatu, or through the Glass courtyard.
The main language of the event in Finnish but the training includes an English-speaking slot by a guest speaker.

The training will be speech-to-text interpreted in Finnish or English, respectively. We will use an induction loop in the training.
Sign up for the course by Monday 21 November with this form (in Finnish).
A limited number of participants are admitted to the course. The registration is binding.
However, please only come if you are not sick with flu. If you must cancel at the last minute due to illness, we ask that you give your spot forward to another participant, or that your work community sends another participant in your place. This way we minimize the risk that a free of charge course has empty spaces because of absences.
