Towards a more inclusive museum: developing multi-sensory approaches to the visual arts for visually impaired audiences.

Patricia Bérubé has completed video game studies and has spent several years working as a 3D artist, both on television and in the medical simulation community. She also studied art history.

As part of her Master's project, Patricia designed and produced two tactile prototypes to translate the colors and content of a work by Alfred Pellan. Currently a PhD 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.
