In-VisIBle project aims at addressing this pressing and growing need for inclusion of people with special needs, specifically by improving their access to Higher Education contents by using and implementing innovative tools for communication and fruition of cultural contents to be integrated in HE didactic modules. As suggested by its name, In-VisIBLe is focused on visual disability, which affects about 30 million people in the EU. A real access to culture for visually impaired and blind people (henceforth “VIB”) is thus an important issue and, when it comes to the Higher Education offer, inclusion is especially challenging for VIB in those fields of knowledge that apparently exclude them without remedy, the so-called “visual” arts. The main focus of the In-VisIBLe project is the needs of the Higher Education systems, and especially the needs and requirements of the VIB students, but the project is also expected to be relevant for the needs of the broader community and of the cultural sector in general.
