RELAXED / LOW SENSORY SESSION | SUN 16 JULY, 11AM—12.30PM
A relaxed, low sensory session is on Sunday 16 July from 11am-12.30pm. Audio and lighting levels have been adjusted for audience with sensory access requirements. Attendees are encouraged to bring what they need to be comfortable. Such as headphones/headsets, sunglasses, and digital or stim devices. The quiet space is in the level 2 lounge.
The level 2 lounge is available for the entire season of Shadow Spirit. The quiet space on Sunday 16 July within the lounge considers low lighting and space design - a discrete, cozy area of the lounge.
Outside of the low sensory session hours, the Level 2 Lounge space is open as both a shop and a place of reflection with lounge chairs.
Seating will be available throughout the exhibition. Additional seating can be requested of RISING staff.
