Come To Your Senses

12 December 2012 - 19 January 2013

COME TO YOUR SENSES
Come to your Senses examines multi-sensory experiences for people of all ages and abilities. Most art depends on the sense of sight in order to understand and enjoy the aesthetic experience. It has been well documented that people learn in various ways, including kinaesthetic learning where touch is of utmost importance. Young children begin their learning journey through touch as they develop an understanding of the world around them. Why is art primarily a visual experience? How can art be made accessible to a wider audience? Often art practices involve the tactile but they are not accessible, we believe art can be “seen” in many ways and we would like to show our audiences how this can be explored.

Opening Friday 14 December at 6pm
