As Jagpal says, there is an attempt to meet the needs of all visitors, with a feeding corner for nursing mothers marked out. For people with disabilities, apart from ramps to make the venue accessible for wheelchair users, there are tactile art works and maps, to name just a few.
Helping to bring the art closer to people with disabilities is a team from #AccessforAll, led by founder Siddhant Shah, the heritage architect and access consultant, who is dedicated to bridging the gap between cultural heritage and disability.The art on display here has been accessed from all over India and there are some unique works like the BMW Art Car”, says Shah”. “We also have a dedicated art project space called Maitri Art Lab, where we have displayed several works. The aim is not just accessibility, but also inclusivity”.
