New programming to widen access included ‘relaxed’ talks and drawing workshops for those with autistic spectrum conditions, sensory and communication disorders and learning disabilities. The events were supported by the Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation. Activities for hard-to-reach groups included free community viewings of special exhibitions and the new Albukhary Foundation Gallery of the Islamic World. The event welcomed over 3,500 people from supplementary schools, charities, adult learning centres, refugee support groups and community centres local to the British Museum.
