Accesibility to Communication

  • Year: 2017 > 2018

This project on which Garagune Easo has been working since 2013 is a research, experiment and application project which enables intellectually diverse people to communicate in different environments and be as self-sufficient as possible.

Accessibility to communication is mainly focused on the hospitality sector. Its objectives are:

  • To raise awareness in society in general and the hospitality sector in particular concerning the difficulties that these people encounter in communicating in unfamiliar surroundings.

  • To create an appropriate tool for each person so that they have greater freedom to communicate and order in bars and cafes.

A prototype of this tool was made in several sessions with the Mediation and Hirikilabs teams of Tabakalera. Now the group, with the help of volunteers and enthusiasts, is moving forward in order to experiment and change the tool.
