Braille Map - Our Cool Capital ‘city map’ initiative aims to place a cast bronze city map at each of our prominent inner city locations. This will act as a tactile orientation point for locals and visitors alike. We will work closely with the city’s top artists and the blind foundation to develop this three dimensional city map as a useful tool with any proceeds to be donated to the less fortunate.
