MANSIL was established by Dr Ellen Adams, Reader in Classical Archaeology at King's College London. Click below to see research aims and the academic framework.
Check out our online projects, including stories designed to promote understanding in how British Sign Language works, and a comparison of audio description and poetry in art.
The MANSIL project includes curated pop-up events in various museums to introduce all visitors to audio description, touch tours and Deaf-led tours in British Sign Language.
Access staff from over 20 museums and galleries have registered interest in MANSIL (London and further afield), in order to share good practice and information. Contact us to join.
