On the 8th of February 2019, the first open forum was held in Antwerp for stakeholders in the field of media and cultural accessibility to exchange insights and learn about the latest technologies and IT solutions that can enhance accessibility to both recorded media and live cultural events. At the event, Content4All was able to present its project and objectives.
