The proposals that the museum enclosures generate in attention to people with visual and hearing disabilities will be the thematic axis of the talk that the National Museum of Art (Munal) of the National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature (INBAL) will transmit on Sunday, June 27 at 4:00 pm through its Facebook page (@ munal.inba), within the framework of the International Day of Deafblindness and the campaign “With you in the distance” of the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Mexico.
How to bring the arts closer to deafblind people? In what way to communicate with them? What do they require to be attended to? And what are your experiences when visiting a museum? These are some of the questions that will be asked in the conversation between the program coordinator Munal + Inclusive, Ariadna Gómez, and Juan Carlos Martín, producer and radio host with visual disabilities, in order to sensitize the public about the needs of these social groups to have more accessible museum spaces to normalize their inclusion in the cultural offer, in accordance with the policies on the matter promoted by INBAL.
This activity is part of the inclusion program carried out by INBAL and which, through the Munal educational area, carries out in attention to these audiences and in which various actions are carried out, such as guided visits and workshops suitable for people with visual, hearing, intellectual and motor disabilities.
Deafblindness is a condition that combines a hearing impairment with a visual impairment, for which reason some people are totally deaf and blind, while others have a hearing and / or visual rest.
The International Day of Deafblindness is commemorated on June 27 in honor of the American activist Helen Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968), an example not only for having been the first deaf and blind person to graduate from a university, but also for their contributions and struggle to raise awareness and awareness about this disability. The date was established within the Declaration of Basic Needs of the Deafblind at the Fourth World Conference Helen Keller, which took place in 1989 in Stockholm, Sweden.
