As part of the legacy for the Sensing Culture project, Simon Hayhoe worked with us to launch the 'Community of Practice' for Sensing Culture. It will encourage the heritage sector, academics and blind and partially sighted people to work together to further continue, develop, and widen the impact of the project. Simon’s highly reputed work has broken down assumptions that people who are blind or partially sighted cannot understand the visual arts. In his keynote, he will explain why visual arts experiences shouldn't be limited to people with full sight. He will reveal what blind and partially sighted people are able to experience with visual art, and the effects of vision loss or no vision on a cultural identity in art.
