Advancing Inclusive Art: Youthmakers Hub’s Role in the First Fully Accessible Exhibition in Athens | June 2022

Youthmakers Hub was privileged to serve as a Communication Partner in the groundbreaking exhibition “Η Πορεία της Γραμμής”. This exhibition, featuring the engraving art of Panagiotis Pristouris, was a significant milestone as it was Athens’ first fully accessible art exhibition. The event was orchestrated by My Artist, with the Epigraphic Museum as a co-organizer.

The exhibition displayed 21 pieces of engraving art, each representing different stages of the artist’s life. In an effort to make the exhibition as accessible as possible, the organizers implemented several innovative measures. QR Codes were used to provide access to audiovisual materials, including sign language interpretations and voice-over descriptions by the artist himself. Additionally, some exhibits were made tactile for the audience, and a sensory map was provided for individuals on the autism spectrum.
