A “must-do” checklist for designing relaxed experiences in arts and cultural spaces does not adequately capture the dynamic nature of how a person engages in an experience.

Relaxed experiences are fluid and evolving experiences based on the dynamic relationship between the person, the venue, and the community.

Led by Roger Ideishi, Director of Occupational Therapy and Professor of Health, Human Function and Rehabilitation Sciences at The George Washington University in Washington D.C., this session will discuss the guiding principles for conceptualising and designing relaxed experiences in arts and cultural venues. It will also explore the personal, social, and organisational rationales for current and future relaxed experiences.

This workshop will include a series of short modules shared in advance to watch in your own time culminating in a live session for questions and answers on Tuesday 19 October 2021 from 2-3:30pm 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.
