At Labyrinth of Senses we believe in a world where diversity, equality, acceptance and respect prevail.
In 2014 a disability awareness workshop came to life, inspired by Gabriela Telekfalvi aiming to tackle the lack of education around disabilities and help people with and without disabilities interact with each other.
In the meantime Aristea Bismpiki joined along and together Labyrinth of Senses team, started creating Tailor Made disability awareness programs with the goal to overcome the prejudice and misinformation that surrounds people with disabilities.
“We aim to provide interactive education on all types of disability, that at the same time empower critical thinking, creativity and interaction between people with and without disability.”
According to WHO “more than a billion people in the world today experience disability. These people generally have poorer health, lower education achievements, fewer economic opportunities and higher rates of poverty. This is largely due to the barriers they face in their everyday lives,
rather than their disability. Disability is not only a public health issue, but also a human rights and development issue.”
“We believe that the disability itself does not cause major barriers, it is the society that is not ready yet the accept all people regardless of their background, social status, ethnicity, age, educational level, the
existence or absence of a disability. This is what we try to tackle”
