Goa festival makes art inclusive and accessible
December 23, 2016
A program called Senses is helping to break the barriers of disability and make art inclusive and accessible for the differently-abled.
The touch-based program is being shown at the Serendipity Arts Festival in Panaji in Goa.
The festival has enabled the visually impaired to get a feel of the exhibits at the Adil Shah palace in Panaji. Art access consultant Siddhant Shah has worked out the concept. People with disabilities, children and the elderly are getting a chance to view art with the help of touch.
Physical maps, braille books, tactile reproductions of art works on display and braille-equipped signs are part of the program.
