When you arrive at Maarag, you will be greeted by one of the team members and given an overview of the importance of this beautiful café-restaurant. Immerse yourself in Maarag, and see the equal and daily interaction between people with special needs and the “normative population.” Tour Maarag’s workshops for a little over an hour, and see the many art products that the members create: necklaces, plates, serving dishes, mobiles for babies, and more. These products are sold at regular prices on the market! Then try your hand at creating one of these products while simulating a disability, using large gloves, special glasses, or other tools. Appreciate the work of the members through this immersive experience. Finally, enjoy a light meal in the wonderful café-restaurant.
