The European Commission recently published the call for applications for the “New European Bauhaus Prize 2021” and one of its 3 objectives is to highlight good examples for inclusive places.
Two projects that were entered in the category on heritage are about inclusive museums for persons with disabilities:
- Multisensory Museum at Van Abbe in Eindhoven (NL)
- Acropolis Monument (GR)
The first selection is based on public vote so it is important that these 2 projects get as many votes as possible to highlight the importance of inclusive projects under the New European Bauhaus. In order to vote you must subscribe to their newsletter.
As a reminder: The Bauhaus principle is to make spaces “beautiful, sustainable, and inclusive” – one of our demands is of course that all built environment should be also accessible in order to be fully inclusive! We also want the EU to reflect this in their calls for new projects.
Via the website of the “New European Bauhaus” you can submit ideas or examples of existing projects and initiatives of accessible, sustainable environments. It is important to show that accessibility is a major aspect so as many contributions as possible are needed. It can be related to housing, work spaces, urban spaces, or a combination of those.
Feel free to submit examples directly or send them to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will submit them in the name of EDF.
