ACCESSIBILITY FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

Amongst the people coming to Rock en Seine, several hundred disabled festival-goers and accompanying persons were welcomed. This was made possible thanks to the expertise of Talkin (ex-Aditevent), a company specialised in the accessibility of events for disabled people. Discover their action and the system they put in place on the video they made.

Video created in partnership with the Estienne school under the pedagogical and artistic direction of Mehdi Hercberg, Eric Boisseau, Patrick Dos Santos and Patrick Pleutin. A big thank you to the students involved in the project!
