NoisyVision wants to spread the knowledge of sensory disability, including low vision and hearing loss, and the genetic conditions they identify (e.g.: Retinitis Pigmentosa, Usher Syndrome, Stargardt Syndrome). We are ALL unique and unrepeatable people, and diversity of perception is a value for the whole community. For this reason we promote a PROACTIVE APPROACH to the limits, we support the well-being of partially sighted and hard of hearing people, involving the community in initiatives aimed at supporting a change in cultural paradigm with which we look at disability.
We build training, recreational and meeting OPPORTUNITIES strictly open to all and designed to be INCLUSIVE and accessible to the sensory disabled. Our excursions, paths and sailing itineraries are first of all moments of fun and personal and collective GROWTH.
NATURE is our privileged context of action and sharing.
YELLOW, color more easily perceived by the visually impaired, vital and energetic, is the key color of the #YellowTheWorld campaign that connects our projects and with which we act for a wider accessibility of environments and services to people with sensory disabilities.

OBJECTIVES

  • We are committed to building a network of people that fosters the sharing of life stories, experiences, skills and talents.
  • We help people with disabilities to become aware of their limitations and find valid growth opportunities, both individual and collective.
  • We create opportunities for meeting between people, also of different nationalities: building projects aimed at promoting and carrying out trips and socialization and exchange activities around the world.
  • We plan actions to improve accessibility to environments and services; What improves the lives of a few can be valid for everyone.
  • We think that art, visual or verbal, is an important communication tool for people with perceptive limits, that can connect them both to those facing the same challenges and to those who do not does. We produce videos, publish prose, promote visual arts and artistic events.
OUR FOCUS AREAS
Travelling: We work to organize different kinds of trips, from mountain trekking to city weekends. We want to encourage people to live their own adventures and enjoy the world even through their limits.
Accessibility: We promote a culture of accessibility in urban and non-urban spaces. We aim at increasing the mobility potential of people with visual impairments.
Art: We understand and stress the relevance of visual and verbal arts as a communication tool for people with sensory limitations, connecting them to those who face similar challenges and those who do not. We produce movies, publish prose, promote visual art and artistic events.
Information: We constantly collect stories and news related to visual and hearing impairment, covering these topics in social, scientific and institutional perspectives.
