AccessibilitytIt is a popular word recently; popular, because it has a positive connotation. It is often mentioned together with the phrase ‘’breaking the barriers’’ and the two phrases are the key theme in „Wroclaw Accessible Capital of Technology and Culture 2016” (short #WroAccessible16).
Breaking the barriersThere are many barriers, which need to be broken in order to achieve accessibility. Often these are bureaucratic, mental or architectural barriers. Unfortunately disabled people often have to break many more barriers than people with no disabilities and this is the leading theme (but not the only one) of „Wroclaw Accessible Capital of Technology and Culture 2016”.
IdeaThe idea is very simple, hence accessible and easily understood. The initiator of this campaign, Łukasz Banaszak, organises a series of events, including photo sessions in various places in Wroclaw and Dolny Śłąsk (Lower Silesia, which are associated with accessibility or are the opposite to accessibility. The participants of these photo shoots are people who often have to break barriers and who help others to break barriers.
Results„Wroclaw Accessible Capital of Technology and Culture 2016” will be summarised in an electronic report and photos from events, information about the conclusions from the campaign, venues, participants and places where to find help on accessibility.
