InSight to Culture is an Arts Council England funded project, engaging members of the local community who are living with impaired vision with Bexhill Museum and the collection. Bexhill Museum is always looking to progress the accessibility of the displays on show to the public within the galleries.
The project aims to research ideas through: experience, discussion and creative activities which will lead to display and interpretation initiatives that provide a more fulfilling experience for all visitors to the museum.
Regular afternoon sessions at the museum allow participants to explore the galleries with Curator Julian Porter, and have the opportunity to handle and experience objects from the museum's stored collection.
Artist-led workshops relating to each of the three main galleries' collections encourage participants to form creative responses to their experience of museum artefacts.
We would like to thank all those who have offered to take part in the project and to the local charities; Hastings and Rother Voluntary Association for the Blind (HRVAB) and Homecall for their support.
