Sensory representation of urban cultural heritage is a project in which part of the urban cultural heritage of Plovdiv is studied and presented through sensory ethnography.
The project includes research, a round table and a new interactive route on the perimeter from Stefan Stambolov Square to Tsar Simeon’s Garden. It is implemented from August to October 2018, and its methodology is based on sensory ethnography.
In October 2018, a public discussion will be held – a round table – on the problems of access for people with visual impairments, which will provide possible solutions for its provision.
In the same month, an interactive sensory tour will be held in a new perimeter in the central parts of the city of Plovdiv, a continuation of the previous “Feel the city“. The tour will include interactive sensory tasks and will be passed in pairs with a guide and a guided one. The guided can be both sighted and blind.
Improving access to urban cultural heritage
The events present the results of the research of cultural heritage in an interactive and interpretive way for residents and guests of Plovdiv, with a focus on access to cultural heritage. The events will be open and free.
