Inclusive experience for those on autism spectrum at Athens art museum

04 January 2022, Greece

The National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) in Athens has teamed up with a nongovernmental organization called The Happy Act to make its institution more friendly to visitors with autism.

Christos Karakatsidis, who was responsible for carrying out the project for the NGO with his sister, Maria, called it a “challenge” that had to take into account the massive expanse of the museum – in the former Fix brewery on the corner of Syngrou Avenue and Kallirois Street – its large number of exhibits and its character.
