In Europe, 83% of the population with the lowest income does not visit museums or other cultural sites. If we then look at young people between 16 and 24 years old, the participation rate is 52.8%: 1 out of 2 of them has not visited a museum or monument in the last year.
The TOMATO project, The Original Museum Available To All, has been launched with the aim of increasing the accessibility of places of culture and knowledge, particularly for children from physically, mentally and socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
With an international team involving 16 partners in eight countries we will develop a physical kit and an app that will make it possible to enjoy museums also in a virtual way.
Let’s do it!
