2019 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholar Patricia Bérubé has written an article in The Conversation focusing on the way artists and art museums are starting to make art more accessible by using multisensory mediation tools.

Patricia Bérubé is a doctoral candidate in Cultural Mediations at Carleton University. Her research interests revolve around issues of accessibility and renewal of the museum discourse for audiences living with vision disabilities.
