Idea behind the project

To Touch Culture is a regular feature at the Jagiellonian University continued over the entire academic year which promotes and puts into practice the idea of bringing people together through culture regardless of their age, (dis)abilities, origin or worldview.

It stands for diverse lectures, presentations and workshops for all the interested and, which is of particular importance, adapted to the needs of persons with disabilities.

It is a project delivered in cooperation with the Jagiellonian University Collegium Maius Museum, which makes that unique place receive adaptations of famous exhibits, prepared with persons who are blind, partially sighted and/or elderly in mind. Spatial adaptations made by students of Design at the Pedagogical University of Cracow supervised by Malwina Antoniszczak, graphic adaptations by Lech Kolasiński and audio description of artworks open up a new perspective of experiencing cultural heritage.

The culmination of each To Touch Culture edition is a June concert at the courtyard of the Jagiellonian University Collegium Maius Museum. Every year, great jazz music and unique meeting opportunities make hundreds flock to embrace the notion of better access to culture for all.
