Access Afternoon

Wednesday, 13 December 2023

Explore our exhibitions dankEconogy1_ALIENVillage and U&I during this session which has been designed for people with additional sensory and access needs who would enjoy a quieter, calmer visit to our exhibitions.

What to expect:

  • Warm and friendly welcome from our staff.
  • Lowered sounds and lights.
  • Chairs to rest, with backs.
  • Large format and audio versions of written material.
  • Transcripts of the videos ‘The Villagers’ and ‘Honey’ in English.
  • Transcript of the video in the Ampule chamber in Punjabi.
  • Support dogs welcomed – we do not allow other dogs into the space unless they are small enough to be carried.
  • Wheelchair accessible entrance and exhibition space (except for the computer game which requires visitors to lie down in order to play).
  • Spotlight in dark areas upon request.
  • Tea and Coffee

Please note that this accessible session will be within the gallery’s normal opening hours, however we have chosen a quieter time which will ensure it is more relaxed. Signage will be posted asking all visitors to maintain lowered conversation volume during this time.

Both exhibitions do contain sound, but we will ensure it is at a low level for this session.
