For All

The Ocean is our greatest and best ally in the ongoing fight against the climate crisis, and we must take care of it. However, to take care of the Ocean, it is fundamental that everyone has access to the scientific knowledge and artistic content concerning it, without excluding anyone. Everyone must be involved in safeguarding the planet and have access to the information and tools to do so. Based on these reflections, the educational department of TBA21–Academy has initiated, in experimental form at Ocean Space, Ocean for All, a program involving people both with and without disabilities, in inclusive experiential moments through tactile visits and visits in Sign Language.



The Educational Department has organized three appointments to explore the exhibition through touch and multisensory experiences. Tactile visits represent a cognitive and relational moment with the artworks (and more), which is important for everyone but fundamental for blind and visually impaired people. Visitors, by appointment, will be guided in building a mental image and appreciating aesthetics.

Participation is free with reservations required, please send an email to education@ocean-space.org.
