On 6 April 2013, CATCH FORUM will bring together artists, designers, innovators, creative technologists, educators, and scholars in the interactive and public engaging formats of discussions, round tables and hands-on demonstration sessions. The FORUM has been designed as a catalyst of creative and critical response to handicap, with a main focus on the potential of new technologies in supporting artistic, cultural and social inclusion of the disabled.

The goal is to map out and critically introduce the best practice in the field as well as to propose next essential steps, including cultural co-productions, educational synergies and policy recommendations.

About the CATCH project

CATCH aims to expand and multiply exchanges in the dimension of scientific knowledge, technological advances and artistic production by elaborating common experimental projects with an ambition to link and integrate the world of artistic expression and the world of impairment and disabilities.
