The world after the pandemic requires to reject of tactility or at least requires waring gloves. How blind and visually impaired people can adapt to such a situation? Tactility is an important part of exploring the world for them. And what about museums that have been preparing special tactile programs for many years using models from various materials, not to be limited only to verbal descriptions of an object?

The experts - Kalliopi Gkika, Olga and Mikhail Shu - will discuss new challenges and plans for the future.

The meeting will take place in zoom.
