WSIS Prizes Contest 2019 Nominee

Czytanie Obrazow / Reading Images


Description

Reading Images is our response to a dream of sharing art with anyone, especially with disabled people who are often excluded from socio-cultural sphere of life.
Our website as well as an app is an invitation to visit all the Polish museums and art galleries, to get to know their variety, to feel and understand their collections.
The collections presented on our website and in our app are often presented in permanent expositions in certain museums across the country. But our website also gives an insight to these which are sometimes kept in magazines or travel somewhere in the world.
Reading Images is yet another idea to eliminate the barriers in accessing the culture and its heritage. Our website and the app offer something interesting for everyone; we have audiodescriptions, translations in a sign language, simplified descriptions, photos, etc. - everything we were able to come up with in order to give an access to art and culture to everyone.
We collaborate with numerous museums and art galleries in Poland.
