Altered Images

Accessible Visual Arts Project

A major, groundbreaking visual arts project developed by Mayo County Council in partnership with South Tipperary County Council and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, supported by the Arts Council. The partners presented a new and unique approach to exhibiting visual arts. Altered images is an interactive exhibition which toured to South Tipperary (June & July 09), Mayo (August & September 09),Dublin(June to August 2010), the Crawford Gallery,Cork(February to April 2011) and The Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny (May & June 2011).

Using an innovative approach - including audio descriptions, three dimensional interpretations of paintings, sound art and an interactive website ( – the project attempts to engage new audiences for the first time, using a multi sensory approach. The catalogue for the exhibition was also produced in accessible formats (audio CD, Braille and large print).
