Can people gain new experiences and information from our offerings, even if they have no previous knowledge of the subject? Have varied types of learning been considered?
Make information available for all levels of interest and understanding. Intellectual access is about making it easy to grasp the content of what is being offered - even if the recipient has no previous knowledge of the subject. Knowing and understanding the background to a performance, exhibition or cultural event helps the audience to appreciate it. It can be helpful if brochures and other publicity information include texts in plain language. Illustrations, hands-on activities, and opportunities to learn through experience provide more possibilities than language-based information alone.
