For the third time the craftspersons met with the museum professionals, disabled people and disabled people’s’ associations. The third “Crafting Access” workshop took part in the City Museum Zenica (after the workshops in Gjirokastra and Knjaževac) gathering members of the Balkan Museum Network from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo. The participants presented their inclusive educational and exhibition activities implemented in their museum. Honorary member of BMN, Dr Diana Walters talked about museums as educational and social institutions; using universal design and the social model approach to improve museum access; as well as about developing sensory trails. Lejla Agić, member of the Balkan Museum Access Group presented Activities that have increased accessibility of the City Museum Zenica and Dafina Morina presented Activities that have increased accessibility of the Museum of Kosova.
In the practical part of the workshop, led by three artists and craftspersons Alma Kurtalić, Sandra Hukić-Vuković and Tatjana Kovačević-Vidović the participants worked with clay, soup and fimo mass as examples of materials that can be used when working with different groups and in activities of various formats.
All participants agreed that this was a fantastic opportunity to talk about developing further museum educational programmes and to intensive sharing of good practices between members of the BMN.
