An experiential workshop led by blind or visually impaired instructors from the Center’s staff.
The workshop takes place in a totally dark space, completely disengaging participants from the disruptive visual stimuli that always surround them. Simulating a state of blindness, it enables a unique acquaintance with the sense of touch, on a journey of emotion and creation under conditions of uncertainty. Participants mold sculptures in soft clay, choosing their themes from a vast world of possibilities tailored to the group’s needs and content worlds, along three axes: personal – group – professional.
Meeting the instructors, they learn about the world of the blind and visually impaired, and how the human spirit contends with the many challenges of everyday life. Stepping back into the light outside, they discover in themselves a new appreciation for things usually taken for granted, and newly imbued inspiration for coping with challenges in their own lives.
