Organised with our friends at Bristol Sight Loss Council and Sight Support, West of England, Arnolfini are planning another Visual Impairment welcome day to introduce the works of Paula Rego.  Her current exhibition of Subversive Stories highlights her wit and dark humour through her reinterpretations of well-known narratives and classic tales like Peter Pan and Jane Eyre

As the galleries are generally closed on a Monday, the team from Arnolfini staff are able to run several Audio Descriptive tours throughout the day without visitors being disturbed by the public.

There will be sighted guides available and complimentary tea and coffee will be served so people can have a chat about the work afterwards.

Tour 1: 10.30am to 11.30pm

Tour 2: 12.30pm to 1.30pm

Tour 3:  2.30pm to 3.30pm
