Abstract

The research project conveyed in this article explores how to inclusively design and curate a non-permanent design exhibition in a large regional gallery (the National Centre for Craft and Design, UK), focusing on enhanced intellectual access for blind and partially sighted visitors. Intellectual access is defined in this research as making it easy for visitors to grasp the content of an exhibition, even if the recipient has no previous knowledge of the subject. The context and rationale for the research, and how the author has attempted to collaborate with various stakeholders and tailor the co-creation research to the specific needs of the blind and partially sighted participants are imparted. The resulting multi-sensory non-permanent exhibition is also described and how it was tested.
