The aws! Project (Art with Senses) is resulting from our strong desire to make the arts accessible to the deafblind. It is our aim to extend the limited world of these people, to stimulate them to experiment new sensations.
We want the deafblind to touch a piece of art, and we want them to be part of the history of it. Furthermore, our purpose is to give them the proper tools to create one by themselves. We desire deafblind to feel the art.
In the first place, making use of the already existing resources. In times of recession, also the institutions related with the world of arts and culture do suffer from a lack of financial resources, however, they still do have the art collections, skilled professionals, equipments and know-how.
We pretend to add our own resources to those of the museums and high schools which are interested and prepared to collaborate with us.
