Explore Handbook: Improving Access to Galleries for Disabled and Deaf People


Designed with the busy professional in mind, this is a practical collection of views, advice, checklists and resources for museums and galleries. It offers support and expertise on becoming more accessible to disabled and deaf people as artists, visitors and staff, and aims to share and raise standards of good practice. It draws on learning that took place in 2007 and 2008 during engage and Shape’s Explore programme. The publication features a CD-ROM with a directory of contacts, case studies for inspiration, guidance notes, and the handbook text as a Word document, suitable for screen readers.
