Accessibility is very important to me as a visually impaired person and an accessibility tester. However, I cannot look at things only from a narrow perspective, but wanted to build a multisensory exhibition taking into account different people and also displaying material in Swedish and English. This allows everyone to explore the exhibition from their own perspective.

Art belongs to everyone

Is that true in practice? This exhibition would be an example of how, with small things, an exhibition can be made accessible to almost everyone. Phone and Qr code can be used to access the exhibition's website, where accessibility offers everyone an opportunity to explore the exhibition.


Intelligibility is a major challenge, both in terms of the abstractness of the exhibition and in terms of accessibility and its history. The topic is to be opened up in texts and expert interviews.

Often the problem is that accessibility is desired, but it is not known how to implement it.

In practice, it is a question of small things, some of which are easy to implement and others are more ambitious requiring more resources.

After the exhibition, the material will remain available to everyone on the website. In this way, it offers an opportunity to explore the theme also afterwards.

The purpose of accessibility in exhibitions is to offer the same emotional experience to all visitors, regardless of their starting point.

Accessible Material

Raised etc. material

The exhibition includes models of foam paper commissioned for a few pictures. Similarly, with dotted drawing, models of the images have been made to support verbal descriptions.

The exhibition also includes touchable printouts.

Verbal description

Description of the phographer has been made for each image in the exhibition. The descriptions can be read and listened to on the exhibition's website by phone.

Analysis of a photographer

The idea is completely new, but with abstract images it may be a good solution for generating an emotional experience in all the visitors of the exhibition.

Feeling a picture

An image can also be perceived with the movements of the hand and body, as well as by describing it by touching the back of a visitor. More on this in the interview with Riitta Lahtinen (EdD).

In addition, on January 25th 2022 at 14:00, there will be an event open to everyone, where one can get acquainted with the topic.
