Museum as An Inclusive Social Space
How can museums offer more inclusive spaces and experiences to improve visitors’ overall well-being? National Gallery Singapore believes in the idea of creating – not just for, but with – communities and they collaborate with various communities to welcome their diverse audiences to the Gallery. The museum developed the first Access Guide by a cultural institution in Singapore and co-created the Calm Room, a sensory-friendly space for all, in close collaboration with their partners. This presentation will share these collaborations and how experiences within the Calm Room seek to improve overall well-being of visitors to the Gallery.
