Working in partnership with groups and individuals across London, we have a particularly active Community and Access programme that encourages wider participation in Museum activities.
Recently we have worked with hospital schools, prisons, people affected by homelessness, people with mental health issues, people from different minority ethnic communities, refugees and asylum seekers. We also run events for people who are D/deaf or hard of hearing and people who are blind or partially sighted.
Current Community and Access programmes at the Wallace Collection include:
- ‘Out of the Frame’: outreach for elderly people in care homes and day centres
- Tea and Tour sessions
- Practical art classes at the museum or delivered as outreach
- ESOL Tours: Introductions to the collection. A number of themed tours are available to ESOL learners at Entry 1 and 2 but the materials could be adapted for higher levels
- ‘Deaf Visions’: Practical art and art history activities in British Sign Language and Sign Supported English.
- ‘Sensation!’: art events for blind and partially sighted visitors.
