Saturday 22 January 2022
Prompted by the World Braille Day on January 4th, the development of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center tactile map, and as part of the SNFCC Accessibility initiative, we invite our young Members to a unique visit and a private tour, exclusively for our Members, at the only Tactual Museum in Greece – and among the sole 5 ones in the world.
The program we will attend during our visit, aims to inform, and raise public awareness about visually impaired people. It consists of three sections. More specifically, a brief thesis about blindness, the needs, the barriers, the daily life of visually impaired people, their ability to move around, and of course an introduction to Braille.
