Butler Gallery

Arts & Disability Ireland and Butler Gallery have been working together since 2013 to make a number of exhibitions accessible to visually impaired audiences at Kilkenny’s Butler Gallery


ADI and Butler Gallery, Kilkenny started a partnership in 2013 to provide access to visual art exhibitions at Butler Gallery to audiences with visual impairments. For the first time in Ireland audio description was made available with a new device called Discovery Pen.

Using the pens audiences who are blind and visually impaired are able to explore the art works through descriptions, artists’ statements and curatorial statements. The pens have been used to great success by various organisations globally to date and were debuted in Ireland at Butler Gallery, Kilkenny in 2013.
