Inese Dundure, Diāna Apele

Abstract


Museums of the world store countless artistic values, which are predominantly located in secure storages, looked after and cared for by museum staff. The museum as a democratic institution in the modern situation wants to be the mediator and unifier of communities, making the cultural and historical values available in their collections accessible to people with special needs, including those with vision impairments, thus widening their circle of visitors. The aim of the article: Study the importance of tactile perception in ensuring accessibility of artistic works to people with vision impairments and analyse the acquired results of the arts catalogue “Still Life” supplemented with tactile images usage in the museum educational programs. The research results were obtained using theoretical research methods: study, analysis and assessment of scientific and journalistic literature, which reveals the essence of the problem, as well as the reflection of personal experience.
