"Kalevala" became a part of the museum inclusion program
The Museum of Fine Arts of Karelia has been working for many years to create a comfortable museum environment for every visitor and is trying to draw public attention to the importance of equal participation of all people in cultural life despite of their physical abilities.
The project team included the new permanent exhibition dedicated to the epic poem "Kalevala", that is created within the KA9021 project, into the pool of inclusion activities of the Museum. 15 videos about the most important and famous works were created with translation in sign language. These are videos about the masterpieces by Tamara Yuf, Nikolai Bryukhanov, Myud Mechev, Nikolai Kochergin, Boris Akbulatov, Georgy Stronk, Vitaly Dobrynin, Igor Gashkov, and some others.
SEE all the videos in sign language on the Museum web-site https://artmuseum.karelia.ru/video-na-zhestovom-yazyke/ob-eksponatah/
