The Dark Shift Exibition 18/10, 2017- 01/02, 2018
Employment and work of the disabled is primarily a human right, including the disabled. The visually impaired are faced with extreme difficulties regarding employment. It shows how the blind have been trained for various jobs through history and presents original items that the blind made in training workshops. The museum also holds an old telephone exchange system which the blind used for working, and the public still usually associates these jobs with the blind. Even though prejudices have changed, they still exist to this day. This exhibition is a small effort in the fight against prejudice and the affirmation of the blind in the labor market.
How to ensure access to cultural events for the disabled?
The Typhlological Museum took part in this education program held in Rijeka on 15 December 2018.
A World of Sounds
After Zagreb, Osijek, and Pula, the World of Sounds exhibition is now touring in Dubrovnik thanks to Dubrovnik Museums. A World of Sounds is an emotional reminder of 2001, when everyone in Croatia got together to enable deaf children to step into the world of sounds. At the Typhlological Museum in Zagreb, it opened in 2016 to mark the 20th anniversary of the first cochlear implant in Croatia and the beginning of rehabilitation of persons with cochlear implants, as well as the 15th anniversary of Let Them Hear, by far the most successful charity campaign so far.
