Visual Access Tour

Monday 8 December 2014 / 12 noon / Free

An audio described tour of the New City Art Prize exhibition.

 

This friendly, informal exhibition tour is for blind and partially sighted visitors, as well as their carers, family members and friends. Guide dogs are welcome.

 

Audio describer Alex Evans will greet you in the entrance foyer and introduce the exhibition over free tea and biscuits. You will have the gallery to yourselves as it is closed to general visitors on Mondays. You will then visit three exhibition spaces and hear from Alex about selected works on display. No special knowledge of art is required and informal discussion is encouraged. If you have any questions about the event, or other access needs, please let us know when booking.

 

Bookings

The tour is free, but places are limited so please book in advance by contacting Hannah Gaunt at MK Gallery on 01908 558305 or email hgaunt@mkgallery.org.

Visually impaired visitors are invited to bring a companion or to book a voluntary companion using the MK Reader Service via www.miltonkeynesreaderservice.org.uk or by calling 01908 231123 for more details of their facilitation service.
