Accessibility Days 2021
The biggest Italian awareness-raising event about Accessibility and Inclusivity of digital technologies.
20-22 May 2021, Online
Andrea Bocelli's message
A person who has supported us over the years is Andrea Bocelli. On several occasions he has also sent us messages: we propose the one for the third edition, in which he told us a beautiful testimony on the importance of technology in the daily life of the disabled. The title he gave to his speech was "Accessibility: a challenge to be taken", to underline the importance of the role that awaits us as people involved in digital technologies.
Soon, by the first half of April, we will update the contents of this section, once we have selected the sessions and other initiatives that we have collected during the Call for Sessions.
To be notified when there are updates, you can subscribe to the event or our newsletter, or follow us on social networks (you can find the references at the bottom of the page).
Past editions have embedded a great deal of enthusiasm among all the participants, thanks to the numerous initiatives that were organized: not only the classic sessions, but also the workshops, such as the Maker's Corner, and other real "sensory" experiences, such as the visit to the Tactile Museum or the Dinner in the Dark.
A summary of the vortex of emotions generated during those days was collected in this post.
Help us bear the costs of the event
Accessibility Days is a non-profit event for which we are striving to have free admission, in order to have as many participants as possible. Such an event requires a lot of expenses, especially if you want to ensure that the participants can have the best possible experience (obviously also in terms of accessibility!), and despite the support of the many volunteers who help us, for some services we must turn to professionals, due to the responsibilities that these tasks require.
To give you an idea of the costs, we have made public the event budget, that you can find in the list below. The entries will be updated from time to time, and will be more precise as the event approaches.
