STEREOTYPES ABOUT BLIND PEOPLE

❓️ Do blind people watch movies? How do they move around urban spaces? Does every blind person know the Braille alphabet and what exactly is it?
We invite you to a conversation with Anna Zielińska, who will talk about her everyday experiences. Meeting participants will then have an opportunity to ask questions, share their reflections and take part in workshops prepared by Anna.
We encourage you to follow the event even if you are unable to attend it in person. The meeting will be recorded and the video will then be made available here (with translation in PJM).
