Go for visually impaired/blind

Because the material is very simple and the strategy is very deep, Go is very suitable to practice by visually impaired.

In many countries in the world, there are visually impaired/blind players and often of very high level (Dan and higher). In Asia especially, Go for the blind is very well established with dedicated tournaments.

Lightly visually impaired may be able to play with standard material, but heavily impaired and blind players may need adapted tactile Go sets that are not easy to find or very expensive in the market. The use of computers may also help to practice with facilitated assistance.

At the moment, one club has been created in the Ligue Braille in Bruxelles (2022). In the long term it is hoped to develop such activities in Belgium.

Festival "I Love science" - call for volunteers for promoting go

15/10/2021 - 00:00
17/10/2021 - 16:00

- Friday October 15 from 9:00 to 16:00
- Saturday October 16 from 10:00 to 18:00
- Sunday October 17 from 10:00 to 18:00

The I LOVE SCIENCE is a festival from where you go out smarter than when you enter. :)

This will be the first time that Go will be represented there.
It’s really an interesting event with a curious public who is without doubt likely to be interested in Go. It will be an opportunity to present the game but also related topics such as artificial intelligence.
We lack volunteers, especially for SUNDAY 17th October. But the other days remain a bit critical too.
Volunteer ? Simply send an e-mail to with availabilities, until the last day it's still possible to join ! Thank you !

FYI: You will need a Covid pass. If you don't have it's possible to get tested on site for free.

If you would like to share your interest for the game with passers-by and have some interest in pedagogy, you are very welcome as volunteer.
Just mail for which events you would volunteer to "", thanks !

Made In Asia is an important festival where we have also been present for twenty years.

As obviously spending 3 days with masks is not so fun ... it is to take into account.
→ Need at least 1 volunteer for Friday and a minimum of 3-4 volunteers per day for Saturdays / Sundays.
