As part of DCSDC’s Disability Awareness Week, Clare McLaughlin returns to Void on Friday 3 December with her project Seen-Unseen. Seen-Unseen deals with the non – visual exploration of art and allows the blind or vision impaired person to experience artwork through their other senses.

This session will be held online and onsite. To sign up, please email Clare on claremclaughlinemail@gmail.com.
