People with disabilities are being invited to one of Birmingham’s leading art galleries as part of the national award-winning Disabled Access Day campaign. The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA), in the Jewellery Quarter, is one of a handful of organisations in the city that is participating in the initiative over three days from Friday, March 10. RBSA has organised a host of activities on March 10, including free talks by artists, for Disabled Access Day, whose theme this year is ‘You and Somewhere New’ and encourages disabled people, their friends and families to try something different and visit places they’ve never been to before.

Dr Marie Considine, gallery director of the RBSA, said: “We’re delighted to be taking part in Disabled Access Day. The RBSA strives to be a leader in accessibility and we regularly welcome and accommodate artists and visitors who have different access needs. Guests on the day can listen to or chat with our artists, or visit our Photographic Prize Exhibition.”

The RBSA, which is located in Brook Street, by St Pauls Square, is free to visit and is accessible to people with disabilities. It has a lift to the upper two floors of exhibition space, level access, wide entrance doors, a drop-off zone and local parking.  For more information on accessing the gallery, follow the link to a detailed video (with BSL):

Disabled Access Day is sponsored by Euan’s Guide, the disabled access review website which is used by people to share and discover accessible places to visit. For more details about events taking place in Birmingham, visit:
