An extraordinary performance of new music featuring visually impaired students from across East Kent and Simon Langton Boys School pupils. Led by composer Richard Navarro and inspired by visits to the Beaney, the students compositions will bring the gallery alive with sound! Part of the HLF-RNIB project Sensing Culture.
A stunning exhibition by people with sight loss, created in workshops led by artists Wendy Daws and Claire Buckley at The Beaney. Participants responded to the textures of the building and collections with work in 3D, textiles, sound and print.
Pick up an activity booklet when you arrive at The Beaney and respond to some of the museum’s most interesting and intriguing portraits through exploration, drawing and writing.
For one morning only we are opening our Front Room gallery an hour early, and limiting numbers, to allow visitors the opportunity to experience a quieter and perhaps more contemplative gallery environment.
