Sensibility Festival invites you to explore, play and experiment. The programme includes sensory experiences, guided tours, and interactive accessible activities across two venues. The centrepiece of the festival is the Sensory Labyrinth, a large scale interactive arts installation designed to be touched, eaten, smelt, moved and felt.

Sensibility Festival is a unique arts installation that has been co-curated by 60 participants with complex communication needs. Together with local artists they have been exploring dynamic ways to develop accessible and multisensory arts practice. The festival challenges conventions of established art making methods and provides experimental art opportunities that nurture and inspire creative practices.

As part of the work that has been created, Interpreters (Deafblind and BSL), captioning and audio description are embedded throughout the festival.

Events will take place at Touchbase Pears, Selly Oak and Midlands Arts Centre. Transport between venues will be available.

Sensibility has been co-produced by 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.

All events as part of the Sensibility Festival are fully accessible.
