A portable Roger Pen hearing system is available for those with hearing aids or hearing difficulties. This can be collected from the front desk.

Dementia

At Void we are proud that we are a Dementia Friendly gallery. Our learning team have received training in the Meet Me at MoMA ethos in order to effectively provide those living with dementia an effective and fulfilling visit to our gallery. A structured tour and workshop (if wanted) is available for people living with dementia and their carers. Please contact engage@derryvoid.com

We also offer outreach visits to eligible community organisations who cannot access the gallery, with tailored presentations/workshops exploring the current exhibition.

What are we doing?

To help us make the Void Gallery website a positive place for everyone, we have been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for Void’s website.

Social Narrative Videos

Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Access and Inclusion team have led on the design of Social Narrative Videos, aimed to be particularly helpful for disabled and neuro diverse visitors with additional needs to plan their visit.

The initiative is supported with funding from the Department for Communities Access and Inclusion programme and the videos can be accessed on the Council’s websites.
