Project by Ashley Partin
“Brl Odes” creates public placards featuring poems by Miamians translated into braille. Each poem, selected for how it features non-visual sensory experiences, is displayed on the placards in both print and Unified English Braille Code.
You can find the placards at Women’s Park, Tropical Park, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, and Matheson Hammock Park.
By using the voices of the community and transcribing their words into braille, the project invites the public to learn more about the braille code and engage with the concept of access, inclusion, and universal design in their neighborhood
