Sydney light festival reaches out to the blind & vision impaired
June 14, 2017
Vivid Sydney is encouraging blind and vision impaired people to use their other senses to experience the light festival.
Vivid transforms landmarks across the city using light, colour and sounds and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
Making the experience accessible for people with limited or no vision is a challenge and the audio description and detail is important to make it an enjoyable experience. Blind visitors no longer have to depend on binoculars or family members to understand what is going on.
The light show runs until 17 June.
