Celebrating 100 stories during National Storytelling Week

To coincide with National Storytelling Week, the UK National Agency is pleased to publish its 100th Erasmus+ story.

The landmark honour goes to the University of Wolverhampton and features its CASTLE project, which is making culture more accessible to those with hearing or visual impairments by improving the business skills of audio describers and subtitlers.

By developing entrepreneurial skills among accessibility service providers, the university hopes that there will be more opportunities for inclusive performances and exhibitions so everyone can have equal access to museums, theatres and places of cultural interest.

“It’s been incredible to be part of something where you bring so many countries together and talk about accessibility,” said Sue Howell, a CASTLE project participant from Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. “It has been refreshing to see that there are so many countries interested in making theatre, art and culture accessible for everybody.

On National Storytelling Week, we would also like to thank all the other beneficiaries and participants who have shared their hard work, passion and stories with us. Your experiences bring colour to the world of Erasmus+.
