In Touch Again - watch this space

Tuesday, 20 January 2009


Following last year’s successful event, Eastbourne Blind Society is hosting again a tactile art exhibition as part of Eastbourne Festival. “In Touch Again” will take place from 18 – 20 April 2009 and showcase work by the members of the society’s art and craft group alongside tactile work by guest artists. This is a unique and groundbreaking local event celebrating inclusive art: bringing together community arts and professional artists, widening access to art beyond vision by breaking the all too familiar touch taboo. Visitors are encouraged to experience art not just through their eyes, but also through their hands.

We are looking for volunteers to help with all the tasks involved in preparing and running this event to ensure that it will be again, as visitors last year described it, “a delight for the senses.”
