Mark - The City Beyond Sight

May 24, 2018, 06:00 AM

In this episode, Mark, who is partially sighted, leads us on a route from his house in North Belfast into the city centre. On the way, he shows us the challenges he faces, the skills he's learned to lead his life, and we look at the impact of design - good and bad - on people who have a disability.

This is the first of two episodes of The Infinite City where we meet people whose experience, and consideration, of space is influenced by disability, and think about what truly inclusive urban design might be like.

The Infinite City is produced by Rebekah McCabe and Conor McCafferty for PLACE, with assistance from Maria Postanogova and Stuart Gray. Music for this episode was composed by Conor McCafferty. The podcast is supported by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Arts and Business Northern Ireland. Thanks to the RNIB for their assistance with this episode.
