Event description
Our third community meeting to bring our community together to share projects, ideas and skills.

About this Event

Science of all kinds can be extremely difficult to access for people with visual impairments (VI). A reliance on images, diagrams, graphs, and other visual representations of data means that people with VI can easily feel excluded from these subjects. However, there are several initiatives and projects in the UK that are working to make topics within physics and astronomy more accessible for this audience. This meeting is the third in a series of community meetings and will showcase these projects, allowing participants to share best practice and explore future collaborations and other opportunities.

Registration for the meeting is free, and lunch will be provided.

Please contact Rob and Nic with any dietary and access requirements.

The content will be community drive, so please contact Rob and Nic if you want to give a talk or present/show something. This can be an update for project doing science to visually impaired audiences, new techniques, ideas, or something else. In the last two meetings we had a vast range of projects, sonification projects, museum projects and many more!
