Since its foundation, Culture Access has sought to promote both thinking and the application of good practices in written communication, with regard to the relevance of contents, as well as the use of clear, accessible language.

Through the course “Accessible Communication: communication design and clear language” (which has had several editions so far, always sold out, in different parts of the country), as well as the promotion of debates and conferences and sharing news regarding these topics, Access Culture aims to keep the reflection alive, always present, and to encourage and assist in the transition from theory to practice, which is a way of contributing to access to culture.

The Access Culture – Clear Language Award is now a complement in this effort, seeking to create an additional motivation to study, implement and promote good practices.
