In Touch Again at Eastbourne Blind Society

Following last year’s successful event, Eastbourne Blind Society is hosting again a tactile art exhibition as part of Eastbourne Festival. “In Touch Again” will take place from 18 – 20 April 2009 and showcase work by the members of the society’s art and craft group alongside tactile work by guest artists. This is a unique and groundbreaking local event celebrating inclusive art: bringing together community arts and professional artists, widening access to art beyond vision by breaking the all too familiar touch taboo. Visitors are encouraged to experience art not just through their eyes, but also through their hands.

Guest artists:

Jules Fleur
Jean Hoad
Jane Montague
Roz Nathan
Grace Powell
Marina Waelti

The event will be opened on 18 April 2009 at 12.30 by Stephen Lloyd - all welcome.

Opening Times: 18 & 19 April 12noon - 4pm
20 April 10am - 4pm, Tea with artists & members 2pm
