    Our challenges 
    1. What do people with different visual impairments see? This question will be answered by every visitor who participates in our provocation to empathize with what a visually impaired person feels every day:
    - to walk a short distance with a white cane; 
    - to look at an image without seeing; 
    - to examine the surrounding world seeing it in a different way with the help of simulation glasses. 

    2. How do blind people perceive museum exhibits? Visitors can view copies of artifacts from the Regional Historical Museum - Varna, made according to a project of the "Largo" gallery, financed by the Municipality of Varna. 

    3. How do blind people write and read? Visitors can learn about the Braille alphabet, write on a tablet with an awl or on a Braille machine. A slide show and an exhibition will introduce visitors to the students' activities.
