About the consultation:
Science Gallery London would like to invite a group of young people (mainly aged 15-25, but older people are welcome) to participate in a 2-hours consultation workshop about accessibility, resources and information for the upcoming exhibition ‘Seeing’ (details below). The workshop will include a presentation about the exhibition, its aims and objectives, the artworks, and the events season that will run alongside the exhibition.
The aim of the consultation is to hear what resources would be interesting for blind & partially sighted visitors and what shape that content could take. We are particularly interested in exploring with the group the scope for and interest in live audio description, tactile models, or recorded audio, amongst other forms. We would like to use the outcomes of the consultation to feed in to designing meaningful forms of content for blind and partially sighted visitors, and to create a long-term commitment within the gallery to the experience of blind and partially sighted visitors.
