History

Accessible Arts and Culture Association (ACCAC) was founded in 2011 to carry out international performance and training exchanges, and to actively build a network around accessibility. ACCAC movement was established by the co-founder of ACCAC Global, Kirsi Mustalahti.

The activities quickly expanded from artistic activities to include development of well-being, international event cooperation, producing quality services, and implementing equality.

ACCAC’s mission has been to promote and increase awareness of the fact that services are not equal for everyone. ACCAC also believed there was a need for an event where people could meet, network and discuss these matters on a global basis. Kirsi Mustalahti, working with event producers and entrepreneurs Sasu Paakkunainen and Sami Kovalainen, founded ACCAC Global in its present form.

In Finland, the Accessible Arts and Culture Association continues its work as ACCAC Finland. The guiding principle behind all activities is to concretely help events, cultural service providers, organisations, theaters, and companies to improve their accessibility and to reach new audiences and participants.

The association wants to improve accessibility in the Finnish culture and events field and to promote equal participation in cultural events for all people.

The Accessible Arts and Culture association was founded in Tampere, Finland in 2011. Accessible Arts and Culture promotes international performance and training exchanges and works to build a national and international network. The central task of the association is to promote work opportunities for artists with disabilities and possibilities for cooperation and internationalization’

Kirsi Mustalahti’s personal mission is to develop international cooperation, diversity and accessible services through culture and art. Her jourey began over ten years ago when she realized that human mind, combined with a lack of knowledge, is the biggest disability that she could imagine.

She started to talk about the possibilities to use culture and art as a tool for making world better for everyone and disseminate information on how to develop cooperation and better services for everyone.
