MISSION STATEMENT

The MFA network has been created with the aim of fulfilling the following objectives:

  • Provide information regarding the facilities and activities available at museums so that visitors can inform themselves in advance.
  • Promote the exchange of information and disseminate the work undertaken by museum professionals through specialist conferences and events.
  • Act as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience.
  • Encourage museums to make continuous progress in the areas of accessibility, Design for All and multisensory experiences, so that the majority of people can explore, discover and make the most of culture.
  • Ensure that museums and cultural institutions become more open towards anyone visiting in person or online, whatever their personal characteristics.
  • Promote social participation in cultural life by involving citizens as active members.
  • Disseminate examples of good practice carried out by cultural institutions and draw attention to museums which have undertaken steps to become more open to all visitors.
  • Help museums to promote their mission statements, values and policies.
  • Disseminate activities and projects carried out by members of the network via the MFA Newsletter and our Twitter and Facebook pages.
  • Provide access to manuals, methods and tools for putting Design for All in practice.
  • Forward comments sent by visitors or professionals to MFA to member institutions, so that they can take the steps necessary to improve.
