Abstract

This participatory design research project explores how the National Centre for Craft & Design (Sleaford, UK) can cost effectively design and curate non-permanent exhibitions that bring outstanding intellectual access to visitors with sight loss. This involved exploring the following research question: How can co-creation processes that involves blind and partially participants effectively facilitate the cross transfer of experience and skills to generate valid information? This conference presentation and panel discussion will focus in particular on the design and testing of the exhibition graphics, (such as wall panels, object labels, exhibition literature) and how these exhibition designs work alongside the contents of the multi-sensory tables, including the audio descriptions.
