Access to cultural goods is basically needed for identification with social groups and communities and, therefore, is a requirement for social integration. Regarding this, the EU-project “Museum Sign Language Guide” aimed at making museum information and exhibitions more accessible for deaf and hard of hearing people by developing museum guides for deaf people in three pilot-museums.
To achieve these objectives, experts in the field of technology (NOUS, numCAD) and sign language (Equalizent GmbH, Racio Ltd.) work together. The project was funded within the European Programme „Lifelong Learning – Grundtvig“. queraum. cultural and social research was the European coordinator.
