Tactile Tours

Tactile Tours are designed to introduce visitors with disability to new ways of experiencing and enjoying contemporary sculpture.

Guided by experienced and specialist training Sculpture by the Sea staff and guides from the Art Gallery of New South Wales, participants will be encouraged to engage with sculpture through informed discussion and touch. The works selected for each tour have been nominated by both Artist and Site Manager as being safe to touch, and are located in accessible areas.

The Tactile Tour program also provides audio description tours for participants who are blind or visually impaired. There will be opportunities for participants to meet an exhibiting artist and discuss their work.

When                 Tours are one hour and available Monday – Friday throughout the exhibition. Early evening tours are available on Tuesdays.

Where                All tours will take place in Marks Park.
