In this Newsletter we introduce MuseumforAll.eu, a new network promoting Design for All in the cultural sector, and welcome new members to our international networks. We also invite you to participate in the ENoLL Summer School which takes place at the end of August to help us co-create a website to facilitate user-centred innovation.
There will be no newsletter in August as we will be closing the Foundation for summer holidays, but we’ll be back in September, refreshed and ready for action again. Until then, on behalf of the Design for All Foundation team, we hope you have a lovely summer.
