The city and its cinema - an accessible excursion

About Event

Persons with disability and wheelchair users have limited options for outdoor experiences on account of limited access and transport facilities. Explore Differently is working on building a mechanism for accessible outdoor exploration options for disabled / wheel chair bound persons for connecting with new experiences, in and around Chennai, thereby leading to a more inclusive city of Chennai. This walks, being a part of Madras Day Celebration, has been put together to welcome participation from wheelchair users and persons with disabilities and possibly their family members (if they wish to accompany). We will encourage individuals without disabilities, atleast a small number, to be a part of this tour. Arrangements for accessible transport (a bus that has a facility to lift wheelchairs), convinient pick up points and portable ramps will be made by Explore Differently (www.facebook.com/exploredifferently), to over come the two physical constables when it comes to outdoor exploration for wheelchair bound persons. We would also have a participation by a special educator to overcome hurdles in communication.
