Studio I

Platform for inclusive culture

Many museums have a desire to take up the themes of accessibility and inclusion, but there is often a lack of knowledge and experience to make concrete adjustments. This is where STUDIO i comes in and makes a change. In recent years, innovative programs have been developed by STUDIO i for people who cannot take museum visits for granted. An example of this is the Unforgettable programme for people with dementia and their loved ones. Another example is the Special Guests programme of the Van Abbemuseum, which makes the museum accessible to the blind and visually impaired, the deaf and hearing impaired, people with aphasia and people with reduced mobility. This is also where STUDIO i is based. STUDIO i is an initiative by Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven) and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.


Talent Development & Work Excursion 2: TextielMuseum / TextielLab

An optimally inclusive society is created when everyone is given the opportunity to use their talents; whether this is in your free time, or in your work! Today, we will introduce you to impactful initiatives that are internationally acclaimed for their views and work on talent development. Creativity, innovation and personal attention are keys to success.

A range full of design products is created at Social Label, where top designers work together with people with a distance to the labour market. The Krachtcentrale 013 gives people wings and stimulates them to explore what it is that gives them energy. Re-integrating has never been so pleasant! And in theory a museum is for everyone, but what if you are visually impaired or deaf, for example? Studio I develops concepts for an inclusive museum experience. You will be introduced to another successful museum experience at the TextielMuseum, exploring work by (inter)national artists and designers during a visit to this iconic place.
