The interactive sensory exhibition “No Frames” was presented for the second time this year on November 22nd and 23rd at the University of Plovdiv “Paisii Hilendarski”, thanks to the Department of Ethnology at the Faculty of Philosophy and History.

Admission was free, but places were limited. Nearly 40 people managed to pass through it without seeing, with the help of guides and curators in the exhibition. Students, professors, teachers, students and friends challenged their senses and felt parts of the urban cultural heritage of Plovdiv. They all managed to put themselves in the position of visually impaired people, at least for a short time, and thought about the possibilities of interpreting the environment around us through all the senses.

“No frames” was established in the spring of 2019 by the participants in the youth workshop “Feel the city”. Challenging their sensory thinking during the workshops, students learn how to interpret some of the important places and sites in Plovdiv, as well as basic skills for guiding people with visual impairments.

After the completion of the project, the enthusiasm of the participants does not stop and we are working to present the exhibition in other places and in other cities. The aim of the initiative is to raise the awareness of more people about the problems of access to cultural heritage and the city.
