Members of the interdisciplinary research team associated with the ‘Accessible Gallery Experiences for Blind or Low Vision Audiences’ project will share creative outcomes and findings from their ongoing research partnership with the Bendigo Art Gallery and Vision Australia. The research translates into a set of guiding principles designed to support accessible engagement with artworks, collections and exhibitions for people who have blindness or low vision. As part of this interactive session BLV participants are invited to engage with innovative technologies to support accessibility-focused, multi-sensory strategies.
