Talking maps... An access for all story

First issued in Directions 45

Loz Simpson is a sculptor. Not just a sculptor, but one with a very special interest and skill. Since the year 2000 he has worked in the field of tactile interpretation for museums, galleries and public places. In fact, he has become recognised as a leading figure within the burgeoning ‘Access for All’ movement. He works closely with RNIB as well as several other leading organisations and museums and has produced numerous works aimed at extending the same enjoyment of art experienced by the sighted to the visually impaired, thus allowing art to reach the entirety of its audience in a way that is not normally possible. This work has even extended to describing landscapes including Mount Everest itself.
