Conversation: Inclusive Museums and Galleries
Sat. 3 December 2016, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm AWST
As Stevie Wonder once said, “We need to make every single thing accessible to every single person with a disability”.
Join in a conversation with access advocates who will share insights, ideas and suggestions on how museums and galleries can embed empathetic and inclusive design principles at the heart of their programs.
