SENSING CULTURE, 2016-2018

Sensing Culture is a Heritage Lottery funded project by the RNIB, which received grants to disperse to arts and cultural sites who wished to make their venues more accessible to blind and partially-sighted (BPS) visitors.

Now in its final filming stages, Sensing Culture has followed the five partner sites as they develop and execute their projects. From Lewes Castle to the Arthur Conan Doyle Collection in Portsmouth, Sensing Culture opens up opportunities to BPS visitors throughout the South West, with a view to inspiring other sites to consider how they can make their venues more welcoming.

The Sensing Culture film will premiere in Manchester in November, 2017. Further details to be announced.
