On April 2, a number of objects in the world, including Galeria Katowicka, will be highlighted in blue as a sign of solidarity with people from the autism spectrum. We do not know much about how people from the autism spectrum perceive the world, with which force the stimuli and information from the environment reach them. We meet such people on the street, in the park or school, but rarely in the difficult, problematic space of the shopping center. And how is it with us? Convince yourself – we invite you to Galeria Katowicka on April 2.
We have prepared educational and information materials on the subject of autism spectrum for you. On this day, you will be able to visit the Mute Room, located on level + 1, intended for people with reduced efficiency of social functioning and reduced tolerance to stimuli resulting from the spectrum of autism. It was prepared in accordance with the guidelines and standards of the Metis Regional Methodological and Educational Center in Katowice, which deals with the professional development of teachers, pedagogues and psychologists on in the field of work with a child from the autism spectrum. On Tuesday, specialists from ROM-E Metis will explain why the room is dominated by subdued, light-beige colors and simple, comfortable and comfortable equipment. They will also talk about practical ways to create a friendly public space for people with autism spectrum, answer questions about autism, what it is, how to understand and accept it. You will also see how our tenants joined the action. And one more important information – symbolically on April 2, we inaugurate the so-called “quiet hours” (9:00 – 11:00) in our Center, during which music and advertising will be turned off in the common areas! “Quiet hours” will be every Saturday, in the chair. 9:00 – 11:00.
