Visit „Przystanek w ciemności” (stop in the dark)

From 05/11 to 06/11
How to navigate in space when we are surrounded by darkness? Can vision be replaced by other senses? In cooperation with the creators of „Niewidzialna ulica” (Invisible Street) project, we invite you to visit the exhibition in a special tent, where you will be able to see how the blind and visually impaired move about the world. The installation will be available on November 5th and 6th, and the visitor will be guided by a blind person. Free entrance.

In complete darkness, created in a special tent with an area of ​​9 sq. m. you will be able to see how the senses of touch, hearing and smell help with orientation in space when eyesight fails. During the visit, under the supervision of a guide - a visually impaired person - visitors will be able to experience life in the dark and learn how blind people function every day, how they recognize colours, shop or sew a button, and what situations are the most difficult for them.

The initiative entitled „Przystanek w ciemności” was organized together with the creators of the „Niewidzialna ulica” project. This is an unusual place in Poznań at Matejki Street, where the so-called an invisible exhibition and various events and workshops are organized. This place was created to bring the lives of blind and partially sighted people and their perception of the world closer to those who enjoy good eyesight.

- This few-minute experience is not only a fascinating journey into the world of imagination, getting to know our senses better, but also a bridge of understanding with disabled people, a lesson in empathy and an attempt to understand people who live differently. On a daily basis, we do not wonder who the blind and visually impaired people who pass by on our way to work or school feel and what they feel. The guides will perfectly introduce visitors to their world felt with the senses of touch, hearing and smell. Therefore, we cordially invite you to visit „Przystanek w ciemności” together with family or friends - says Jolanta Jolanta Zielińska-Kaźmierczak, author „Niewidzialna ulica” " project in Poznań.

„Przystanek w ciemności” installation will be available on November 5th and 6th in the passage of our Shopping Center during the working hours of the facility, that is from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.
