Join Hannah Goodwin, Independent Accessibility Specialist, Rebecca McGinnis, Senior Managing Educator for Accessibility at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) and Annie Leist, Associate Educator, Community & Access Programs at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) for a Workshop dedicated to developing multi-sensory strategies to engage all audiences.

Through interactive experiences, discussion, and group activities, you will gain an understanding of the unique characteristics of different senses and modalities. You will also receive guidance on how and when to activate these to optimise learning, engagement, and enjoyment for your various audiences. Participants will be equipped with tools and strategies to implement multi-sensory elements in galleries, the classroom, and online that will benefit all learners and create more accessible and inclusive experiences. Note, in order to maximise on your time, there will be a small amount of pre-session work to do ahead of the session.

Taking place on Wednesday 13 October 2021 from 2-5:30pm IST, registration is €25 per person and can be booked here.

Note: All times advertised are in Irish Summer Time GMT+1 (IST).

This event will have live Speech to Text (CART) provided by MyClearText and will take place in Zoom.

Irish, American, and British Sign Language interpretation is available on request at the time of registration or by contacting Síle Stewart, Event Manager, by emailing by Friday 24 September 2021.

This event will not be recorded but an edited transcript will be made available shortly after the session.

Irish Sign Language (ISL) is the sign language used in the republic of Ireland. The language makes use of space and involves movement of hands, body, face and head. A sign language interpreter interprets what a person says or signs simultaneously, or immediately afterwards.

Speech to Text is a process of converting speech into text.
