The goal of the Resident Disabled Project is to qualify the service provided to people with disabilities who visit the Football Museum.
Periodically, we invite people with disabilities to work with us, living with the team to break the attitude and communication barriers that become obstacles to true inclusion.
Our residents help us to improve the accessibility features provided by the Museum, develop inclusive educational games, and promote small adjustments to the exhibition space so that the visits are really accessible to all.
The project started in 2010 and is a national reference of Museum accessibility. For the first time, in 2019, we had a resident athlete: Alex Firmino, who plays Football for Amputees
At every residency, we develop a joint project based on the participant’s experience.
