Dark Blue Festival 2017

Traditional gathering of visually impaired children and youth known as the Dark Blue Festival will take place, for the 28th time, in Brno on 27–29 April, once again offering exhibitions, seminars, an “adventure day”, as well as a series of musical performances.

The name of the festival comes from a song called “Tmavomodrý svět” by the famous Ježek, Voskovec & Werich trio. The festival is devoted to children and youth who use music as a form of expression in lieu of their eyesight. It is also a unique opportunity for the general public to learn more about this handicap.

The programme of the festival started on 3 April in the Jiří Mahen Library with an exhibition of artworks by the clients of the HapAteliér workshop, called Tmavomodrá výstava (Dark Blue Exhibition). Having no visual control over the outcomes of their work, these artists have to rely on their hands.

Included in the programme are events taking place in the Orlí Street Theatre and the Břetislav Bakala Hall where, on 27 April between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., a series of events known as Tmavomodrý den (Dark Blue Day) will take place. On 29 April at 7:00 p.m. Čankišou will give special performance whose proceeds will be used to cover the expenses incurred with the festival.

Dark Blue Adventure is a cryptography game that anyone can try for free during the festival. Participants need a smartphone with Internet connectivity, paper, pencil and a player card which they can obtain at the information centre at Radnická 8, which serves as the starting point of the game.
