In compliance with Lions Clubs International Foundation SightFirst programme, Kraków Lions Clubs have initiated The World Song Festival for the Blind ‘Sounds from the Heart’. Our aim is to promote awareness of the difficulties and needs of those with their sight impaired.

The contest is intended for talented vocalists struggling with sight problems – blind or partially sighted, who are not professional musicians. We believe that because of the competition, they could be spotted by the music industry and start their professional careers.

The venue for the festival is Kraków, a city distincted by the European Commission in ‘Access City Award 2011’ competition for recognition of its initiatives aimed at making life easier for the handicapped. One of these initiatives is a special tourist route using three-dimensional maps and GPS technology to make access to the city’s cultural and historical heritage easier for blind and vision impaired people.
