The Fundació Joan Miró has taken part in the Apropa Cultura programme since September 2013. Its support of Apropa Cultura has led to the development of activities aimed at people with disabilities and groups at risk of social exclusion, as well as to a comprehensive reappraisal of the museum’s commitment to the whole of society.
Adopting an inclusive approach, the Foundation offers guided tours of the exhibitions and workshops specially adapted to the needs of different groups. It also provides guided tours and shows with a sign language interpreter and specific routes for the visually impaired.
Since it was first established, the Foundation has paid particular attention to the physical accessibility of its spaces, and it plans to gradually introduce the principles of universal design to the exhibitions it stages.
Apropa Cultura Week 2016 at the Fundació Joan Miró
Apropa Cultura Cruïlles Project
The Foundation team will take part in a project of mutual learning and exchange with Susoespai. Creation and Mental Health, led by Fina Alert.
During the Apropa Cultura Week, a group of users of Susoespai will visit the exhibitions Fiction is a Reality Yet to Happen by Ana Garcia-Pineda at Espai 13 and Endgame: Duchamp, Chess and the Avant-garde. The visits will be the starting point of the project Correspondences, a game and a literary excuse for creating a unique life constellation based on the experiences and emotions of the users of Susoespai and the workers at the Fundació Joan Miró.
Visit for visually impaired people to the exhibition Fiction is a Reality Yet to Happen by Ana Garcia-Pineda at Espai 13, Fundació Joan Miró
The artist Ana Garcia-Pineda, who presents a project in which drawings, texts and audio combine with humour, creating parallel universes, will conduct the visit, for which she has prepared one of the drawings of the piece Iguals in relief and the reproduction of one of the sculptures of the work Cos. The exhibition forms part of the cycle One Foot Out. Expeditions and Diasporas, curated by Jordi Antas.
