The University of Maastricht and EBU stand up for the accessibility of art works

In June 2018 the Faculty of Law of Maastricht University invited the EBU to participate in the workshop “Crafting Intellectual Property Law to Enhance Disability Access to Artistic Works through 3D Printing Technology” in order to include disabled people’s perspective on the subject.


Youth

Dream it Do It! – Empowering youth workers across Europe

Young people with visual impairments from all over Europe have met in Berlin to learn about project management and development. From 28 September to 6 October, the German Federation of the Blind and Partially Sighted (DBSV) hosted a one-week training course for youth workers under the title “Dream it Do it!”.


Culture

Tactile Illustrated Books in France.

Les Doigts Qui Rêvent, (Dreaming Fingers) was born in 1993 due to the total lack of access to TiBs (Tactile Illustrated Books) for visually impaired children in France.

A group of parents and a teacher, seeing no official answers, decided to react. One teacher in the group managed to produce one TiB (100 copies of a collage book) by sheer improvisation. But the success of this TiB proved that it was urgent to create a special workshop to produce TiBs

MY CINEMA WITHOUT IMAGE (MON CINEMA SANS IMAGE©)

Throughout the world, in cinemas and on TV, more and more films are offered with audiodescription, aimed at a visually impaired audience.

However, these films remain films made 'by' the sighted 'for' the sighted, according to criteria they have defined.

MY CINEMA WITHOUT IMAGE reverses the situation.
