Tactile Tour: Sculpture at Bathers

A Tactile Tour especially designed for people who are blind or vision impaired only.

Set in the historic Bathers Beach Art Precinct, Fremantle, the location and intimacy of S@B are unparalleled, offering audiences an unforgettable cultural experience and showcasing the unique, historic atmosphere of Fremantle’s West End. For 2022 Sculpture at Bathers is pleased to partner with local organisations including the City of Fremantle, Fremantle Ports, the Town of East Fremantle, Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour Trader’s Association, City of Melville, DADAA, Artsource and the Western Australian Museum to reach a wider audience and deliver S@B.

This event marks an expansion for Sculpture at Bathers: installation of the sculptures by 73 WA artists will spread along Bathers Beach, inside the gallery at Kidogo Arthouse and the outside forecourt at WA Shipwrecks Museum. In a new initiative, five works by local artists will be displayed at Fremantle Ports.

Visitors who are blind or vision impaired, your families and friends are invited to participate in a free Tactile Tour of the sculptures in the exhibition with experienced DADAA guides. Individuals, school students, groups from disability service organisations and aged care homes are all encouraged to take up this opportunity.

Tactile Tours are designed to introduce visitors with disability to new ways of experiencing and enjoying contemporary sculpture through informed discussion and touch. The sculptures are located in accessible areas.
