Elevenses, Thursday 25 January, The Sensational Museum

Tea Cup with biscuit

The Sensational Museum is a research project radically re-thinking the role of senses in museums. A £1M project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), it will design and create sensory interventions that are accessible to all – using what we know about disability to change how museums work for everyone.

Dr Sophie Vohra will talk about her role in The Sensational Museum. She will explain how her work on collections aims to reimagine and redevelop UK collections management with ability, diversity and universal design at its core, and what this might look like in practice.

The project is keen to showcase good and interesting examples of accessible and inclusive design, resources and practice. If you would like to feature your work, then fill in the form which can be found on the website.

Insightful, interactive and informal, come along to gain new insights from our guests, meet colleagues from the region, and connect with the MDY team. Everyone who works and volunteers in museums is most welcome, including museum freelancers who want to stay connected.
