The AGO offers a series of multi-sensory tours to visitors with vision loss, designed to increase their opportunities to engage with art.
Tours topics vary from month to month and include tactile experiences with art, plus verbal descriptions, combined with objects, sounds and smells, which evoke connections to the collections.
Tours occur on the first Thursday of the month at 2:30 pm and the first Sunday of the month at 1:30 pm and last approximately 90 minutes. In January the Sunday tour will occur on January 8th at 1:30 pm.
Tours are limited to 10 people and are free with admission; a companion accompanying the visitor with vision loss has free entry.
Participants must register in advance either by e-mailing Doris Van Den Brekel or by calling 416 979-6660 ex 268.
With two week's notice tours can also be booked for other times.
