Dear All,
Please find details of a new forum on BlindArt's website, beneath. If you
have a list or know of another that has not received this email, then please
pass on the information. I feel that this is potentially and excellent
resource:

"BlindArt Forum

BlindArt unveils an exciting new feature on its website to make your
art-world bigger and better connected Post events, exhibitions, web-links
and CHAT

This month sees the launch of an interactive Forum on BlindArt website where
people can read, write about and discuss issues relating to art, visual
impairment and disability. The Forum will help raise public awareness of
inclusive events and the issues surrounding inclusive arts.

The BlindArt Forum aims are:
• To create a promotional tool for artists to show their works
• To provide a space for art organizations to promote their events
• To establish an interactive resource for the visually impaired community
on creating and accessing art

Posting on BlindArt Forum will reach a wide public from all over the world.
BlindArt’s website receives an average of 20,000 visitors and 105,000 hits
per month. The vast majority of visitors are from Europe and North America,
followed by Asia, and a handful of visitors each month from Oceania, Africa
and South America.

BlindArt Forum is set to become the on-line interactive social network for
the public providing an accessible resource archive on inclusive arts, and a
place to express views and experiences and discuss and engage in debate with
others.
