People who did not dare to enter the castle before will be able to get acquainted with the history of the respected princely family of Ostroh and the city of Dubna.
Most people with disabilities of various nosologies are separated from cultural and artistic life because they do not have the opportunity to visit cultural institutions due to physical obstacles or the inability to perceive information. Therefore, the purpose of our organization over the past three years has been to ensure the accessibility of the cultural product of Dubna Castle, the organization of leisure, creating conditions for a comfortable stay of all visitors, including people with disabilities.
In 2020, two grants were implemented, which were funded by the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation under the "Inclusive Art" program.
One of the projects "Cultural products of Rivne region without restrictions", implemented by the NGO "Regional Development Center" Triad "together with the NGO" Generation of Successful Action "in Rivne region with information and organizational assistance of the Department of Culture and Tourism of Rivne Regional State Administration.
This project was aimed at adapting the cultural products of Dubna Castle to the needs of people with visual and hearing impairments.
Thanks to this project, people with disabilities can visit Dubna Castle, both accompanied by a guide and use an audio guide with typhlocommentary. Mnemonics were installed for independent movement in the museum space; special contrasting protectors were installed on the stairways (ascent to the museum and entrance to the Gate Building); marking of the castle territory; labeling of exhibition halls made in Braille; special guides and booklets are made in Braille. A presentation of the castle with sign language translation was prepared for people with hearing impairments.
The next project was developed in cooperation with the State Historical and Cultural Reserve of Dubno, NGO "Coalition for the Protection of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities due to Intellectual Disabilities" in partnership with the Khanenko Museum in Kyiv and Kremenets Museum of Local Lore. Thanks to this project, Dubna Castle has become accessible to visitors with intellectual disabilities. As part of the project, a special brochure "I'm going to the museum" was made to prepare people of this nosology to visit the museum, provided informational, methodological material and developed a tour in plain language.
We truly thank all the partners for the implementation of these projects.
