Feel the City: Tactile Exhibition

Feel the City is a tactile exhibition made accessible from a physical and informational point of view in order to address the most diverse audience, and especially the blind and people with difficulty understanding.

The exhibition contains the 3D tactile models of more than 22 representative cultural spaces in Timișoara, the tactile maps of the four historical districts and the general tactile map of the city, a tactile brochure in book format and a tactile brochure in page format, as well as five works of contemporary sensory art, creations of plastic artist Lucretia Maiorescu.

Each exhibit is presented in text and audio format in simplified, easy-to-understand language.

Audio information related to the 3D tactile models and works is delivered via an audio-guide platform with iOS and Android mobile apps, which provides playback of content in Romanian, English, German, Hungarian, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese based on exhibit identification through smart NFC tags and the selection of the playback language according to the visitor's preference.

The audio information of the tactile maps and brochures is delivered in Romanian, by accessing the QR codes inserted in the pages with graphic elements.

The sound background of the audio materials represents a fragment of the song "Lauda", composed and performed by the blind student Theodor Alexandru Rădulescu.

Visiting schedule: Tuesday - Saturday, in time intervals established on the basis of prior appointment. The registration form is available on the project website.

The project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023" and is funded through the Grow Timișoara 2023 programme, implemented by the Center for Projects Timișoara, with funds allocated from the state budget, through the budget of the Ministry of Culture.
