Access to Heritage:

Historical Illustration and Inclusive Design

Our heritage access consultancy connects people with their past through inclusive exhibition design, workshops and historical illustration activities.  We develop and deliver projects in close collaboration with museum design or development teams; exhibition designers and architects; curators, historians and educators.

Historical illustration makes history engaging and accessible. Reconstruction images enable more people to learn about their heritage. Through our drawings, we present history in images. Multiple uses in museums and heritage sites include interpretation on exhibition panels; leaflets or websites; heritage trails and education activities.

Inclusive design and access covers planning, design and operation. We work with museums, galleries and heritage collections on exhibitions, display and interpretation. Our services include strategic review, auditing and design appraisal or design workshops. We recommend practical solutions to meet current inclusive design standards and best practice. We are careful to learn from and reflect people’s lived experience of facing and removing barriers to access.
