Museum of Cycladic Art Offers Free Guided Tours in Greek Sign Language

ATHENS – With the aim of making its exhibitions accessible to all social groups, the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens offers, for the first time, organized tours of its permanent collections for the deaf and hard of hearing in Greek sign language, in collaboration with HandsUp, the first Sign Language Interpreter agency in Hellas. From October 6 at 6 PM and every first Thursday of the month at the same time, a guided tour – with a different theme each day – will be held for people with hearing problems. The guided tours are offered free of charge and are carried out with the support of the Antonios and Ioannis Angelikousis Foundation. The topic of the guided tour will be announced every month on https://cycladic.gr/.

The guided tours in Greek sign language are an activity of the social program for people with disabilities (PWD) of the Museum of Cycladic Art. In addition to the guided tours, please note that on cycladic.gr, information about visiting the museum is available in Greek Sign Language, as well as at the entrance of the museum via a video in sign language. In the permanent exhibition of Cycladic Art, a video has been designed that includes a recorded tour in the Greek Sign Language with Greek subtitles, as well as with English subtitles.
