From the conviction that art must act as an engine of reflection and social transformation, MACBA promotes an accessibility programme not only with the aim of promoting access for all to contemporary art, but also with the desire to welcome and articulate new debates and critical junctures in the field of art and functional diversity.

In its commitment to universal accessibility, MACBA conducts a continuous review to improve its facilities, as well as its conceptual principles. As for the programmes, it generates a number of activities for bringing people closer to the contents of the Museum and that incorporate resources adapted to the needs of different publics. Understanding diversity as an element of collective experimentation and learning, we aim to make it possible for everyone to enjoy the spaces, activities and aesthetic experiences we have to offer.
