Innovative access options in heritage and cultural venues

Innovate Access Options

What’s on offer?

In this online Zoom event, a number of speakers will give presentations on access options to cultural and heritage venues in Northern Ireland. This will be followed by a video depicting a small group of blind and partially sighted people on a recent guided tour of Hillsborough Castle, Northern Ireland. Sign language will be provided at the event.

What’s it about?

This event will consider current approaches museums are taking to attract visitors back safely and how accessibility and inclusivity will be affected. There will be speakers from a range of local and national museums, art galleries and visitor gardens. We will explore ideas such as the concept of ‘slow looking’ and multi-sensory tours.

Who’s leading the event?

This event will be facilitated by Xi Wang, Marie-Curie Early Stage Researcher and PhD student in the School of Arts, English and Languages at Queen's University Belfast. Speakers will include Cailín Lynn, the Programming Development Manager at National Museums NI and Adam Stoneman, SPICE Project Researcher at IMMA, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Ireland.
