On June 12, 2018, the NRCB Plovdiv took part in a discussion, part of the Workshop „Accessible Museum“, organized by the Regional Archaeological Museum. The theme of the seminar was the museum as a social and educational space for visitors with disabilities and additional needs – social, psychological and physical prerequisites for interaction in the museum environment.
It was attended by representatives of organizations for and for people with disabilities, lecturers at Plovdiv University, representatives of museums and other cultural institutions.
The discussion was devoted to seeking ways to improve communication and to find practical solutions together with representatives of specialized resource centers and schools for people with special needs.
On our part, we discussed the specific needs of visually impaired people in museums and galleries, the approaches to presenting the exhibits in a way accessible to them, as well as strategies to provoke their interest in visits to museums.
