Museums at Fingertips (MaF)

Social Inclusion

Museums at Fingertips (MaF) promotes empathy in the community through art education, advocating for inclusion, diversity, and equality for people with visual impairments. 

The project offers a wide array of workshops to raise awareness about accessibility services in and between museums and galleries. The project utilises 3D printing technology and specific materials to transform collections from various museums around the world into 3D-Print Touch Art Models. Coupled with Cantonese and English spoken audio descriptions (AD), it enhances the audience’s comprehension of the works by stimulating their different senses. By doing so, MaF aims to improve the public’s quality of life and connect with museums and galleries, enhancing their service towards inclusion and accessibility in the process.
