Adaptations

The graphic adaptations of exhibits have been created by the painting artist Lech Kolasiński. Thanks to them, persons who are blind or partially sighted have an opportunity to become familiar with the exhibit through touch.
Notably, each edition of the To Touch Culture event involves a presentation of adaptations of exhibits linked to the Jagiellonian University Museum Collegium Maius. They are produced taking into consideration the perception of persons with sight disability by students of design from the Pedagogical University of Cracow. The course which generates interesting ideas on how to present exhibits is led by Malwina Antoniszczak. Her students obtain knowledge about sight disability thanks to training offered by the JU Disability Support Service.
