This event is a celebratory opening of The Critical Visitor: Intersectional Approaches to Rethinking and Retooling Inclusion and Accessibility in Heritage Spaces. The research team consisting of Eliza Steinbock (Leiden University), Hester Dibbits (Reinwardt Academy, AHK and Erasmus University Rotterdam), Dirk van den Heuvel (Jaap Bakema Study Centre, TU Delft, Het Nieuwe Instituut), and two PhDs will present the five sub-projects, including a series of field laboratories, archive interactions with artists and a salon series to involve professionals and the public in the project.

In public interview sessions the fifteen scientific, public and private partners will give short introductions on their relationship to and history of working with intersectionality theory or methods regarding previous or current inclusion and accessibility initiatives. They will explain their planned role in The Critical Visitor project. The afternoon will close with festive drinks and appetizers in which partners and audience can get to know each other better.
