Supported by Vision Australia, Living in a Sensory World: Stories of People with Blindness and Low Vision gives visitors an understanding of the blindness and low vision community through personal stories, objects from Vision Australia’s heritage collection and examples of new technologies that are increasing the independence of thousands of Australians.
Audio description of the exhibition has been provided by Vision Australia in consultation with Media Access Australia. This gives access to the arts for blind and vision impaired people through an audio track which describes the appearance of displays.
Visitors can download the audio description file from the Vision Australia website and play it on an Mp3 player as they walk around the Museum. The Melbourne Museum also provides a number of services catering to the needs of people with a disability, including captions, hearing loops and wheelchair access.
Living In A Sensory World is at Melbourne Museum until 28 October. It will then tour venues in regional Victoria.
