Visual stories

These visual stories have photographs and information of what you can expect from a visit to the gallery.

Communication cards

Communication cards provide a means of visual, or nonverbal, communication.

You can use our communication cards to ask for directions to facilities in the gallery. These include toilet, café, seating, shop, quiet room, and exit. Show one of the cards to a member of Tate staff if you need to be shown to one of these places.

You can download these cards and print at home or save as a PDF on your portable device. There are two colour versions, with white or yellow background. Use whichever version you find easiest to read.

Tate is grateful to Anna Farley who initiated and championed the development of these communication cards. Anna is an autistic artist who makes work exploring her autism, UK disability culture and inclusion.
