As you may be aware, plans are currently afoot for a new WA Museum at the Cultural Centre. This Saturday afternoon, the Museum is running a workshop on disability access for the new museum in their desire ‘to go beyond complying with accessibility standards, and make sure the New Museum is a world leader in every way.’
They are inviting participants to give their thoughts on this issue, which I think is particularly important. Especially when you consider the number of people now with sensory issues, learning difficulties, autism/ Aspergers… It would be great to get away from thinking disabled means in a wheelchair, and realise that everyone deserves inclusion and methods taken within the built environment can enhance many people’s lives.
The session size is limited so you need to register. All participants receive a ticket to the Secrets of the Afterlife: Magic, Mummies and Immortality in Ancient Egypt exhibition.
