Abstract

The present paper aims to present the Spektrum project (Erasmus+ Youth. Action 2 - Strategic Partnerships) as good practice of transverse skills promotion among museum users with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The project, coordinated by the National Museum in Krakow (Poland), involves cultural organizations and research centres from Great Britain, Italy, Spain and Belgium, partners with rich and long-standing experience working with people with ASD. The project includes an analysis of the current edu- cational offer and accessibility level of cultural institutions in the partners’ countries and an exchange of good practices among European institutions. The partnership seeks the inspiration to develop new solutions and activities dedi- cated to the young audience on the autism spectrum and their families. Two years of cooperation (2020-2022) aim at creating strategic project resources and tools for museums to become more autism-friendly. The important feature is training for museum staff tailored to the needs of the cultural institutions, sensitizing to the needs of people with ASD.
