This new relationship empowers the blind, boosts their self-esteem, developing their emotional, intellectual and creative potential, bring them dignity and income opportunity, and sighted participants learning a whole new way of perceiving and communicating.

Pictures coming out of the blindfold photo workshop are exhibited (multi sensory accessible format) along pictures taken by trained blind photographers under Blind With Camera program, making the audience to rethink their assumptions and expectations from both blind and sighted people regarding what each is capable of accomplishing.
