Open Doors, Open Minds – free conference on inclusive access in museums

Free one day conference on inclusive access in museums, Kelham Island Museum and Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet Sheffield, Monday 22 September 2014

 

Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust has just completed a one year Arts Council-funded project to improve our sites for people with disabilities. We invite you to share the twists and turns of our journey towards inclusion and find out what we have learned. Places are limited so early booking is recommended.

 

Access information for both sites is detailed on our website www.simt.co.uk Please let us know if you require any additional assistance or have particular dietary requirements. We will be providing accessible transport between the two sites so please let us know if you are a wheelchair user.
