I remembered Normandy, where the picture was poured by the Lord Mer of one of the small towns of the French coast. The French lady who looked at the picture admired the same style as the lady in the district of Jugla in Riga.
Jugla is the area where the blind live, here is the boarding school, which we visited on our first visit to Latvia. At that time Nastia Proskuryakova studied at school, today she organizes inclusive events in Riga.
When Boris finished working on the picture, I came up with a traditional question: “Why do we need blinds in society?”. In the hall, there are young blinds of Riga: Olechov Misha, Yasha, Vlada Chmielewska, rehabilitation centre employees and customers of the centre.
The question, as always aroused emotions. There were traditional answers: “So, why do we need all the people?”. One of the ladies tried to explain on a mixture of Russian and Latvian that this is an incorrect question. During the workshop, many questions were asked about the organization of blindfolded walks. It’s nice that there were many questions and opinions from the audience. At the end of the event, we watch a fresh video about the regatta in Yekaterinburg with the stories of Stepan Panov and Zhenya Cherepanova, after the video there is applause. When we disperse, Yasha continues to tell endless stories about the machines, breakdowns in which he diagnoses by ear. Some participants of the event at the exit admire the picture, which remains in the centre. Tanya Dzhemileva rewrites interview with Misha Olekhov, today Misha speaks in other voice, less high singing notes in a voice.
