Israel Embassy Partners With Access Israel For An 'Accessible Cocktail' Event To Champion Inclusion And Accessibility
New Delhi, September 22 (TNA) The Embassy of Israel in India, in partnership with the Zero Project, CII-IBDN, and Youth4jobs, proudly hosted a first-of-its-kind “Accessible Cocktail” led by Access Israel.
The "Accessible Cocktail" event stands as an innovative initiative, aimed to shed light on the hurdles confronted by people with disabilities. The event offered attendees an exclusive, tailor-made sensory journey, profoundly emphasizing the need to provide accessibility within our society.
Michal Rimon, CEO of Access Israel, said: “The Accessible Cocktail event shared Access Israel's expertise in experiential training and awareness projects with our Indian friends, fostering an understanding of disabilities and technology solutions to assist and bridge gaps. We believe in mutual learning and see vast opportunities for collaboration in accessibility and inclusion between our two countries.”
During the cocktail portion of the event, participants had the unique opportunity to explore the concept of orientation through the perspectives of individuals with diverse disabilities, heightening their awareness and understanding.
This experiential journey included immersive encounters such as the Blind Tasting Bar, where guests blindfolded themselves to taste, identify and mix their own drinks, the Sign and Wine Bar, where drink orders were communicated exclusively through sign language, and the Appetizers Bar, which simulated limited hand mobility while allowing participants to sample a range of foods.
Access Israel is a prominent Israeli non-profit organization committed to advancing accessibility and inclusion for individuals with disabilities.
