AAA – accessible art for all

AAA. Accessible Art for All is a multi-targeted European initiative, primarily aimed at raising the awareness on important messages for future European societies through arts and culture: from climate change and environmental sustainability, to the importance of being in the EU, a society which should always be against bullying and discrimination and inclusive with migrants and refugees.

Festivals themes

Toilets for Future

Rome

AAA in Rome gets inspired by Fridays for Future, the movement initiated by Greta Thunberg and linked to the EU environmental priorities. By joining this project, Explora wants to redesign the toilet facilities of the Museum, adopt new water-saving technologies and focus on the importance of having more sustainable and environmentally friendly places to raise awareness of children and families.

Toilets for Erasmus Generation

Hamburg

in Hamburg AAA is connected to the importance of European common history, values and benefits, represented by the most well-know European program, symbol of an entire generation, Erasmus. The challenge is to communicate the importance of being in the EU, especially to the young, who might be attracted by extremist and populist movements;

Toilets against bullying and discrimination

Kristianstaad

in Kristianstad AAA promotes an inclusive society – starting from people with disabilities, the project will tackle any types of bullying and discrimination – from traditional to hate speech and cyber bullying, or further discriminations based on race, religion, sexual orientation;

Toilets for dialogue between culture

Leicester

in Leicester AAA is linked to the kaleidoscope of different cultures that coexist together. By involving under-represented groups, migrants and refugees, and through contaminations with local initiatives (LIBERTY UK International), the project will promote dialogue and positive benefits of living in a multicultural society

Toilets against bullying and discrimination

Sofia

THE AAA. Festival against bullying and discrimination in Sofia addresses the theme of diversity through the exclusive eyes of children, youth, and families. By bringing together national and international organisations active in the field of disabilities and human rights, it uses the means of art to draw attention to these crucial societal issues.
