Cultural Accessibility Division

Visually impaired people should have the same access to diverse spheres of social life. However, they are still cut off from cultural life on a regular basis. That is the main reason why our Cultural Accessibility division intervenes to ensure works of art and artistic creations such as paintings, photographs, sculptures, cinema productions, theatre plays, and highly illustrated books for young children are accessible to them.
