Kickstarter Campaign: Star Wars Convention for the Disabled

JJ Lucia-Wright, a member of Extreme Clowning, an organization that helps the deaf/blind experience entertainment in an accessible way has created the first Star Wars convention that is just for people with disabilities. The convention will take place later this year in Peterborough England. Attendees will be able to tactually explore costumes from the films, meet costume characters and actors from the films, and even get to experience a droid. There will be sign language and tactile sign language interpreters on hand. Donations to the Kickstarter campaign will be used to support the many volunteers that are going to make the event possible. Is this a cool idea, or just a bit weird? Sound off in the comments.
