Where and when


October 25th, Milan – Talent Garden Calabiana 
The Accessibility Camp is organized within the MiCA project (Milano for the Culture of Accessibility) #conFondazioneCariplo

The concept


The Accessibility Camp is one day event where participants will meet with national and international digital accessibility experts to share knowledge, insights and good practices through a highly interactive format. 
The event aims to establish relationships that lead to the design and implementation of innovative and shared projects, to provide solutions to the needs of people with visual impairments.
The first part of the day will be dedicated to keynote speeches by national and international experts that will set the stage and present the dynamics and the state of the arts at a global level.
In the second part of the day, thematic working groups, starting with a shared brainstorming, capable of stimulating conversation, where everyone will be called to play an active role and to confront in an informal environment, will be organized.
