Artist Sally Booth leads this audio-described touch tour and art-making session for blind and visually impaired visitors.

Join London-based artist Sally Booth for an audio-described touch tour through the Royal Academy’s annual Summer Exhibition. Now in its 249th year, this far-ranging exhibition provides a unique platform to explore new and recent art created by everyone from emerging artists to the biggest names in contemporary art and architecture.

As a visually impaired artist, Sally’s work is influenced by how she experiences the world. After leading a tour of the galleries, Sally will direct an art-making workshop, encouraging attendees to create work based on their personal reflections on their experience in this year’s show.

This event includes refreshments and volunteer support is provided.
