Sculpture by the Sea

Date: 02/03/2018 - 19/03/2018

Venue: Cottesloe Beach, Cottesloe

Sculpture by the Sea stages artworks along Cottesloe Beach and surrounding grassed areas to present one of the largest free-to-the-public sculpture exhibitions in the world.

Visitors with disability and their carers are invited to participate in a free Tactile Tour of some of the sculptures in the exhibition, with experienced DADAA guides. Individuals, school students and groups from disability service organisations 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 works selected for each tour have been nominated by both the artists and the site manager as being safe to touch. The sculptures are located in accessible areas.

Verbal descriptions of the sculptures visited during the tours are offered to participants who are blind or vision impaired.

Access to Cottesloe Beach can be made from the ramps or stairs at different locations along Marine Parade.
