Accessibility and inclusion a focus of S@B5

Art inspires visitors to Sculpture at Bathers

S@B is continuing to improve access initiatives to our exhibitions, so that visitors of all abilities can enjoy the best of Western Australian sculpture.

As part of S@B5 we are collaborating with DADAA to offer free tactile tours for visitors who are blind or vision impaired, friends and supporters.

The tours include visual descriptions of the exhibition and the artworks by a trained guide and carefully controlled tactile opportunities to explore the sculptures on display.

We loved seeing the first tour group so engaged – check out these fantastic pictures of drawings by tour participant and DADAA Fremantle artist Graham Withey. Graham made observational drawings inspired by the works of Sharyn Egan, Rick Vermey and Greg Molloy. Graham used ink marker and watercolours to create his drawings.

As part of our commitment to creating accessible exhibitions, we also have free Beach Wheelchairs available for Hire at Bathers Beach from 10 am to 4 pm – available from the WA Shipwrecks Museum.
