DIALOGUE BEYOND SIGHT
Dialogue Beyond Sight ® is a cross-disciplinary collaboration featuring the works of visually impaired creative practitioners.
This project is less about looking or seeing and more about creating, doing and making things happen. It is about taking an understanding of whatever the challenge may be and doing what is required, regardless.
Our approach is to weave innovative and imaginative creative activities into the fabric of collaborative creative practice, unlocking the full potential of creative practitioners for the greater good of the collaboration. Some of the processes may be experimental or exploratory but all of the creative ventures will be inspired and expressive, and also participatory and productive.

Dialogue Beyond Sight ® is a cross-disciplinary collaboration featuring the works of visually impaired and blind creative practitioners.
The 2016 exhibition was created in response to the theme Dialogue, with a total of 16 visually impaired and blind visual artists and performers presenting a plethora of artworks which included paintings, illustrations, sculptures, decor and installations, while the performances included recitals, storytelling and classical songs.
Part of the programme of events included 10 scheduled workshops, covering various topics and interests, including the Talking Untouchables, a workshop that explored the approach to creating accessibility tools for museums and art galleries for their visually impaired audiences, and Drawing Beyond Sight, a workshop that revealed ways of creating artworks that draw upon our imagination to create dynamic narratives.
