For the first time since 2015 I have been working a role that I often enjoy: BSL gallery tours that mainly, but not exclusively, focus on fashion and contemporary art.
These tours are aimed at Deaf audiences and last between 45 minutes and a hour, including Q&A and opportunities for audience participation.
So far, in recent months I have had the pleasure of covering Azzedine Alaïa the Couturier at the Design Museum (25th September 2018) and Rachel Maclean’s The Lion and the Unicorn at The National Gallery (25th January 2019), both in London, which attracted a largely new audience that night. Feedback has been positive so far and I plan to do more when time and family commitments allow.
I am currently developing a BSL tour with Windsor Castle in May 2019 – watch this space for details soon.
