ORT: Baia Mare(Der Seminarraum ist barrierefrei!)
DATUM: 6.-12. Mai 2019
Background of the project
People with physical disabilities are facing countless obstacles of all kinds, every day, mostly because the environment is not accessible enough and the mentalities are not adapted enough. We believe they could themselves actively contribute to the accesibility process (both among their peers and in relation to the “outside world”), if they only had the know-how on the methods and some empowerment to support their initiative.
Our project, VisiAbility, aims to provide youth workers with non-formal methods and instruments based on visual communication, which will ease both their work with people with disabilities and the latter’s social integration.
The training course will be focused on:
● teaching youth workers about a series of nonformal methods and instruments based on visual communication: photovoice, easy read, graphic facilitation;
● testing all the above-mentioned methods and instruments and developing / adapting others, considering the needs and capabilities of the people with disabilities;
● sharing examples of good practices in working with people with disabilities;
● creating a proper context for developing a new network of organizations for further development of new inclusive projects and activities.
