Editor notes

The tour is part of a wider project by Vocaleyes and the Royal National Institute of the Blind on audio description for museums, galleries and heritage venues with an overall aim to develop new audiences. Tate Britain is one of three case studies and a research programme that will be presented in project publications and a conference. The other case studies are a touring exhibition of Ben Nicholson’s later work (Chasing Out Something Alive, Drawings and Painted Reliefs 1950 - 75, an exhibition which started at Kettles Yard, Cambridge) and a partnership with a regional heritage venue, Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich.
