Crowdsourcing accessibility of cultural spaces in Moscow

Art to be Open is a project consisting of an internet-based platform and mobile app with a database of all the inclusive programs and accessible locations throughout the city of Moscow. Highly interactive, the platform not only provides information on the accessibilty of cultural institutions, but users can also add their own experiences. The project includes an inclusive map, calendar of events, a consulting service, and the service "Each other." The team also created an installation with a model of Moscow and its top 30 museums, visualizing the data gathered on their accessibility.
