Sensibility Festival: Unlock The Sensory Labyrinth

Fri 18 – Sun 20 May

As part of Sensibility Festival mac and Sense Arts invite you to explore, play and experiment. The centrepiece of the festival is the Sensory Labyrinth, a large scale interactive arts installation designed to be touched, eaten, smelt, moved and felt that has been co-curated by 60 participants with complex communication needs.

Experiential guided tours of the Sensory Labyrinth across the two venues (TouchBase Pears and mac) allow you to discover all that is on offer. Starting from Touchbase Pears audiences can freely participate or take time away from each section of the tour. Tours are available on Friday and Sunday and must be pre-booked.

Drop in and explore the Sensory Labyrinth independently on Saturday. Free admission, no booking required.

Transport will be provided; each ticket admits one individual and companion.

If you are booking online a member of our Customer Services team will be in touch to take note of communication preferences and additional requirements prior to the tour.

Please note that the 10am and 10.30am tours on Sunday will be smaller groups to enable anyone who finds crowds overwhelming to access the event.

Sensibility has been co-produced by the Midlands Arts Centre, Sense Arts and co-directed by Graeae Theatre Company and Steph Singer (BitterSuite/Open Senses Festival),

in collaboration with artists Justin Wiggan, Lynn Cox, Saranjit Birdi and InterACTION.
