Challenging Ocularcentricity in the Museum - Translating Vision

'Challenging Ocularcentricity in the Museum' is a series of four day-long seminars run in response to a need for research on multisensory art education and to recent Disability Discrimination legislation which makes blind people's access to museums a legal requirement. All the seminars are interdisciplinary and will be of interest to museum and gallery staff, art educators, academics, policy makers and the social services.

Translating Vision
Is visual knowledge radically untranslatable or can it be made accessible to blind people? In either case what educational models exist that can potentially bring art and artefacts within the meaningful reach of blind visitors to museums?

Date: 05 June, 2003
