The project aims to create an innovative solution to the social need of visually impaired people being unable to confidently visit/attend arts venues independently and to create a solution for arts organisations to make reasonable adjustments to give independent access and mobility confidence to visually impaired people. To positively influence organisational behaviour towards individuals with disabilities and consider wider cultural implications.
