Consulting services
for accessible culture

Did you know that 40% of the population faces obstacles with mobility, orientation, or understanding of printed information? Some temporarily, others throughout their whole life because of their disability.

It is a big segment of society for which your cultural events might be less accessible or not accessible at all.

Are you interested in becoming open up to this audience?

We will help you!

Accessibility is the new norm

Accessibility is not a charity for us. It is a tool to open your event or institution to the people who have most probably never visited it before. It is a way to increase the diversity of your audience. It is a belief that everybody has a right to access and enjoy the culture.

What´s in it for you?

We know you probably don't have time to spare, but try unusual team building in the form of our accessibility training and see for yourself.

Often three small steps are enough and you will be more accessible than most competitors.

And the world will never be the same.

Who are we

The One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival is part of the People in Need Organisation.

In 2016 we decided that the film festival should be accessible to everyone and we started to work on the accessibility of the festival.

People with disabilities work on our team. We work with organisations that help people with disabilities, as well as cinemas and other cultural institutions that have decided to offer accessible services.

We created a manual on how to make culture accessible.
