Accessibility group visits rely on trained educators capable of working with different types of audiences, such as the visual impaired, people with hearing disabilities, physical and mental disabilities, autism, Down syndrome and other particularities. We’ve developed a program that takes into consideration these special needs. To aid us in this mission, we employ mediation objects, relational objects, three-dimensional materials and games, both inside and outside of the galleries.
In mediated visits the educators and the public walk the galleries of the exhibition building, through dialogue, a connection between the content of the exhibitions and their own experiences. Our team has bilingual educators in Brazilian sign language to meet the demands of deaf people fluent in sign language. We have a team of specialists fluent in Libras (Brazilian Sign Language), as well as translators.
Theatrical visits enliven the cultural and architectural heritage with an actor wearing vintage costumes. Our educators rehearse and interpret the text in sign language strolling through the historic buildings. They are also performed by sign language interpreters or deaf educators. We have a team of specialists fluent in Libras (Brazilian Sign Language), as well as translators.
