I am a curator who specialises in accessibility. My interest in this developed from my Bachelor’s Degree in Photography, where I was exploring my family’s experience with visual impairments through the genetic condition, Retinitis Pigmentosa. My research with this Master’s degree has focused on accessibility and equality, as I believe that everyone should have access to the arts.
I put this research into practice in my final unit — organising, designing, and completing an accessible exhibition called Unapologetically Me. This included multiple access measures including audio descriptions, QR codes, and Dyslexia-friendly fonts, with this the main aim of the exhibition. I hope to be able to continue using the research I have gained from this degree in my future practice, working to improve accessibility, develop exhibition design, and give people a way to enjoy the arts.
