Accesible culture exhibition

Textual presented its first Accessible Culture Exhibition, which included a selection of different shows adapted for people with sensory needs. The event featured film, poetry, music, dance and theatre and its aim was to make the general public aware of how accessibility is possible in our culture.

Textual wanted to show that every type of culture can be accessible to everyone, overcoming obstacles that hinder this public’s access to culture in general. We wanted to show just how easy it is to make culture accessible and how beneficial it is: it promotes integration and improves access to information. People with audible and visual disability are in their right to access this information which is a must for society in general; there is no way we can advance if we don’t all work together.

The exhibition took place in the Muelle de las Carabelas’s wonderful setting, in Palos de la Frontera (Huelva). Entry was free and we were very happy with how the day panned out. The best thing about the event was the people who came: a lively and very diverse crowd of all ages including deaf and hearing people, blind and sighted people, and deaf-blind people. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of the shows and congratulated us and encouraged us to continue this initiative. So, when’s the next one?
