Abstract

This paper describes a project that aims to help improve the accessibility of museums and heritage
sites by creating a series of interactive, multisensory objects. The objects will be developed
collaboratively by artists, technologists, people with an interest in heritage sites, and people with
disabilities and their carers in a series of sensory art and electronics workshops. The workshops
and the sensory objects will explore aspects of physicality and how to appeal to the entire range of
senses for both control and feedback. In addition to creating new interactive objects, the project
aims to learn more about how to engage people with disabilities as participant researchers in
designing art objects, and how to make heritage sites more accessible generally.
