An opportunity to explore different methods of interpreting artwork and exhibitions for blind and partially sighted people.


// 11 June 1-4pm
Continuing 23 July with a closing feedback & analysis session.
// At Turf Projects, Keeley Road, Croydon
// FREE & refreshments provided

Join us for the second in a three-part series exploring the interpretation of art with visual impairment. Continuing on from our Talk & Q&A on the 18 May (view a text version at our blog here), access consultant Caroline Dawson will help us to collaboratively explore making Turf's upcoming exhibition 'Ground' accessible for blind and partially sighted people.

This session is a chance for participants to discuss, experiment with, and experience creating alternative interpretation of 'Ground' for visually impaired visitors (or anyone wishing to access the exhibition alternatively), which will then be available for the duration of the show.

Attending all sessions is by no means compulsory or necessary to get a feel for the subject but is recommended for those who want to follow the process from development to implementation to assessment.


The third session of the series will run during the closing day of 'Ground', acting as a feedback session and ongoing conclusion for the alternative interpretation that was created with visually-impaired visitors in mind during the first workshop on 11 June. Here participants will be able to discuss and assess the success of the project, and consider how alternative interpretation can be brought in on a long-term basis, both within and outside of Turf.


Caroline Dawson is a London-based access consultant who specialises in improving the interpretation of museum and gallery exhibits for visually impaired people.
