Culture for All

The City of Geneva pays particular attention to all its audiences by implementing measures designed to remove the financial barrier to enjoying cultural offerings, developing approaches ensuring the involvement of people from different socio-cultural backgrounds and creating capabilities to avoid placing handicapped people at a disadvantage.
