The Art House and WDSA does The Artwalk
Artwalk Wakefield: You're invited to join us for our next accessible guided tour for people with sight loss on Wednesday 27th March!
The Art House and WDSA does The Artwalk takes place on 27th March 2019 at 5pm.
The Art House
Ask anyone who has visited and they'll tell you, Artwalk is Wakefield's best kept secret. For the past eleven years they've been entertaining audiences with bi-monthly free events across the city including exhibitions, live music, performances, poetry, and so much more.
Last year we did our first guided tour and had a great time discovering how fun and inclusive the event was. You don't have to know anything about the arts to get involved, everyone is welcome and many of the events are suitable for people with visual impairments.
Agenda: We will gather at The Art House at 5pm for a welcome drink and an introduction to their new show by artist in residence, Tony Heaton OBE: https://www.artwalk.org.uk/sessions/tony-heaton-residency-exhibition/
We will them move on to the museum: https://www.artwalk.org.uk/sessions/celebrating-the-heritage-of-city-fields-area/
Then end at Westgate Chapel: https://www.artwalk.org.uk/sessions/napoleonivth/
We anticipate that the tour itself will last around an hour and a half, and if people would like to have a drink together afterwards there are plenty of places close by. Walking time between venues will be limited to around 5 minutes, and the venues chosen will be as accessible as possible. One of Artwalk Wakefield's volunteer team will guide the tour and we will have staff and volunteers on hand to audio describe the work and help guide people. You can book your place online (https://bit.ly/2TUsPyP) or contact us in the office if you need help booking your place.
