The Lowry become the first arts venue to launch an interactive video tour with iRoam for visitors with social anxieties

The Lowry and Access Social have today launched an interactive video tour of the Salford based arts venue. In doing so The Lowry has become the first arts venue to use iRoam.

Access Social has been working in partnership with The Lowry to create a video that supports people who may need to prepare for their visit to the venue. Although Access Social work primarily with and for people living with Autism, Dementia and other social anxiety disabilities the video is intended for use by all those who wish to visit and would benefit from familiarising themselves beforehand.

Rachel Miller, marketing director at The Lowry, said: “It’s wonderful to see our work with the team at Access Social come to fruition. The addition of an interactive video tour to our website will help so many of our visitors feel welcomed into the building before they step foot out of their own home. It’s great that we can add the interactive video tour to the range of facilities already in place and we look forward to continuing our work with Access Social and enhancing our visitors experience.”

Anthony Curran, director at Access Social Ltd added “It’s been a pleasure work with the team at The Lowry to develop a product that will assist their visitors and it’s great to see accessibility, especially for people with hidden requirements, high on the agenda.”

The Lowry welcomes all visitors regardless of their disability and strives to meet all individuals’ needs where possible. The venue has been awarded a Silver award from ‘Attitude is Everything’ for its dedication to enable access to the venue
