Join Annie Leist, Disability Inclusion Associate at the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, for a workshop designed to get you thinking about how to design effective and meaningful tactile graphics and models to engage people with and without vision. Explore the differences between visual and tactile experience, and learn how to use that awareness to thoughtfully plan, create, and select successful tactile representations and objects to serve constituents and engage audiences. You’ll also review strategies on how to implement the tactiles well, and how context can impact a tactile’s meaning. Please register by emailing email@example.com or calling 212-621-0627
