There is nothing worse than going to an exhibition filled with fun colourful things and knowing you can’t touch them (we’re looking at you Yayoi Kasuma). Thankfully, Tuggeranong Arts Centre and the Canberra Blind Society realise this and are presenting you with their awesome interactive show, Touch.

Now showing at the Canberra Theatre Centre, Touch is a 30 minute interactive tactile exhibition that invites the audience to experience art with their own two hands.

The installation, presented in total darkness, will give you insight into the world of eight members of Canberra’s blind and vision-impaired community.

Led by local artist Tony Steel, the group has shared their vivid perceptions of form, texture and colour to create this truly unique experience.

Touch includes artistic works based on the participants’ interpretations of the world, created through a series of workshops from April to June.

The ambitious project removes the traditional restrictions between the public and works of art, with the audience invited to become active participants, not just spectators.

It’s no surprise the exhibition’s already being called ‘the best installation you’ll never see’.

Touch is an initiative of the Tuggeranong Arts Centre’s Community Cultural Inclusion Program (CCIP).

Touch is now showing at the Courtyard Studio at the Canberra Theatre Centre until July 12.
