The exhibition, which opens on September 1, will explore the challenges faced by those with dual sensory impairments and will go a long way to explain how those with impairments face the challenges that it brings.
Members of Deafblind Cymru will discuss a number of subjects and talk about their own experience including Rosa Crean who is a Commonwealth bowls champion.
As part of the exhibition Rosa explains how she has learned to play bowls with a visual impairment. She said: “The coach tells you where the jack is and, because I can’t see it, he explains where to bowl the ball and what weight to use, for example, bowl at two o’clock or nine o’clock.”
Laura Lees, Deafblind Cymru’s South Wales Group Coordinator added,
“We wanted to create an exhibition that not only celebrates the history of Deafblind UK and Cymru, but our members also wanted to provide information about what it’s like to have dual sensory impairments in Cardiff, discuss the daily challenges they face and also provide advice about how people can communicate with people who have visual and hearing impairments.”
