At the Wallace Collection, equality, diversity and inclusion are values that guide all of our work. Through our access programme – designed for people who may face barriers to participation in museums – we invite diverse audiences to engage with the Collection’s extraordinary artworks. As you will read in this report, the programme consists of events both onsite and online as well as digital resources. Among our offerings are ‘relaxed mornings,’ in which we offer particular groups exclusive access to the Collection or a special exhibition for a few dedicated hours. All of these relaxed, friendly events are delivered by our learning team and underpinned by robust learning pedagogy.
This year, we expanded our onsite offerings for blind and partially sighted adults and adults who are D/deaf, reconnecting with past participants and reaching new audiences. From April 2022 to March 2023, we delivered 15 events – including talks, tours and workshops – to 154 people.
We remain immensely grateful to the Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation for your continued support, which makes these important programmes possible.
