We have developed a number of access resources to support your visit to Turner Prize 2023, and our team are on hand in each space to help with any individual access needs you may have during your visit. If you have any specific access requirements that you need to arrange in advance, please contact email@example.com
Sensory Bags containing aids for visitors such as ear defenders, fidget toys, mini-magnifiers, colour paddles and Sunflower Lanyards will be available in the Turner Prize Welcome Space. Sensory Bags can be used for the duration of your visit.
Visual Guide & Sensory Maps
Anna Farley, Associate Artist with Project Art Works, has worked with us to create a visual guide to Turner Prize 2023.
Anna makes work exploring her autism and co-occurring conditions, as well as policies and attitudes in the UK towards disabilities, benefits and inclusion.
This guide includes sensory maps and access information, offering new ways for all visitors to access the Turner Prize exhibitions. It presents visual rather than text-led information.
VocalEyes, a charity dedicated to bringing art and culture to life for blind and visually impaired people, has developed audio descriptions of each space.

Quiet Time & Quiet space
We are offering bespoke Quiet Time sessions for groups who would benefit from a calmer, more relaxed experience. The sessions are mainly for – but not limited to – children, young people and adults with autism; people with social, emotional, or mental health needs; adults living with dementia; and any other visitors, groups or classes with sensory needs or who may benefit from a calmer experience.
To book a Quiet time session please send your query to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: Quiet times can only take place outside of Towner’s usual opening times and with a minimum of two weeks’ notice. If a quiet space is needed during your visit, please speak to a team member and we’ll be happy to facilitate.
