In the shoes of a blind person

A blindfolded experience to grasp visual accessibility requirements.

During the whole workshop you become visually impaired, being blindfolded or wearing special glasses. In this situation, you will discover how to go from the entrance of Experimentarium to an exhibition space that you will then visit. Those who wear visually impairing glasses will be able to guide their blindfolded peers and roles will be switched mid-way.

A collective feedback discussion will take place at the end of the session and speakers will each offer a short talk about their own museum's experience.
