Providing Access to Visual Art for People Without Sight (2017 Montreal)

Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, ON

This Breakout Session addresses the topic of visual art tours for people without sight at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Providing access to art for people without sight allows special visitors to see art through another's eyes. The program also examines how the process enhances a sighted person's ability to "look to really see" a work of art. Docent techniques and approaches for this visual art tour will be explored further through interactive role-playing.
