Visitors with disabilities

Our programme for visitors with special needs is connecting the gallery and art to all visitors and is designed in cooperation with experts on people with special needs. If required the gallery can visit you too! We can arrange visits to the groups unable to travel to the gallery – we will bring artgames and creativity closer to you. In recent years we have successfully worked with members of VDC Polž from Šentilj, children and youth from Dom Antona Skale in Maribor and Maribor Pediatrics Clinic Hospital School. Participants of our programmes have displayed their works in the annual exhibition at the UGM Miprijagalerija/Thegallerysuitsme.

Our group programme is free of charge and is carried out from Tuesday to Saturday between 9:00 and 18:00. 
Each group is supervised by the gallery educator and group leader.
Bookings: minimum two weeks in advance from Monday to Friday, 8:00−10:00 and 13:00−15:00.
