KÄNNBART – AN ART PROJECT
Art, exchange, competence – the key to success
Until now people with deafblindness and visual impairments have not been much visible in the public room - especially not in the Swedish art-scene. However, in the project Kännbart a new approach to include and collaborate with this particular target group was initiated. With contemporary artist new unique art pieces was made with in a spectra of senses that´s normally not in focus at the art scene. The work was building on courage, inspiration and method development – current norms have been challenged. Together we will strengthen culture and diversity.
In this session you will learn how people can meet through art when vision or hearing is not needed. The speakers will talk about their personal experience of deafblindness and how fear comes by ignorance. They will inspire you to have the courage to think outside the box and develop new methods.
