Are you interested in how to make the arts, heritage and culture sector more accessible and inclusive for blind and partially sighted visitors? We invite you to the ‘Layers of Vision Workshop: How Can Co-Production Influence Policy’.
This in-person workshop will use the Layers of Vision exhibition and its wider research project to open dialogue with blind and partially sighted artists, sight loss organisations and policy makers on the power of co-production and how to harness it to create accessibility in arts and cultural sectors.
Keynote speakers will include the Layers of Vision exhibition artist Natalie Doig as well as the Charisma Team, a Virtual Reality Design company that has recently co-produced an accessible virtual reality experience about assistive technology.
Please let us know if you have access support needs for this workshop. To enable us to make any specific support bookings, we would need you to contact us as soon as possible. We invite attendees to do this when registering for the event, but you are welcome to contact us with queries via firstname.lastname@example.org
About Layers of Vision
Layers of Vision is an art exhibition that explores the experiences and perspectives of blind and partially sighted (BPS) artists living in a world made for sighted people. In meaningfully co-created and joyful ways, Layers of Vision raises attention to, and challenges, the barriers that people with visual impairment are facing in everyday life. It does so by exhibiting ten artworks that celebrate and creatively explore accessibility. The exhibition is open to the public from 21 November to 16 December 2022.
Layers of Vision is devised by Dr Katharina C. Husemann (King’s Business School), Dr Anica Zeyen (Royal Holloway, University of London) and Dr Leighanne Higgins (Lancaster University Management School). It is based on their ongoing research in which they explore how museums in the UK make their art collections accessible to blind and partially sighted visitors. The exhibition is funded by King’s Business School Innovation Fund, and is supported by King’s Culture, King’s Digital Lab, Shape Arts, and Zoe Partington.
