Challenging Ocularcentricity in the Museum - New Strategies for Learning Sharon Perry
July 03, 2003
'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.
