Feel The City – Culture for All, Along Bega
The purpose of the event is to present the 3D tactile models of cultural spaces located along the Bega Route: the „Banatul” Philharmonic, the Faber building, the „New Millenium” Reformed Centre and the Iosefin Water Tower.
These models are part of the Feel the City tactile exhibition that will open in December 2023.
The exhibition addresses especially visually impaired, and includes: 26 tactile 3D models of the most representative cultural spaces in Timișoara, tactile maps of the city’s 5 districts, and a general tactile map of the city, one tactile brochure in book format and one in page format.
The audio information related to the 3D tactile models is delivered through an audio-guide platform with iOS and Android mobile applications, which plays content based on the identification of exhibits through NFC smart tags. The audio recordings are in mp3 format and feature premium quality AI-generated narration in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese, as well as audio content based on recordings in Romanian and Hungarian.
The tactile maps and brochures have access to audio information through QR codes.
