The EU project ARCHES, which makes art barrier-free, is nominated for the Heritage in Motion Award 2020.
The Heritage in Motion (HiM) Award competition has a long tradition of rewarding the best examples of innovative multimedia and digital projects dedicated to Europe's cultural heritage. It seeks the best projects that use media and technology to make Europe's artistic and cultural heritage more available and accessible in new ways for new audiences.
ARCHES is one of ten nominated projects, which can now hope for the Europe-wide award, which will be presented at the award ceremony at the end of November 2020. The ARCHES project ("Accessible Ressources for Cultural Heritage EcoSystems") is a unique Horizon2020 project in which twelve European institutions from the fields of art, technology and science joined forces to develop solutions based on Key Enabling Technologies for the accessible museum of the future. The result is a series of innovative solutions, such as tactile reliefs or interactive multimedia guides for accessible art experiences, which are already in use in museums throughout Europe.
