Jerwood Gallery are launching a new programme of Relaxed Mornings. The gallery will open its doors an hour earlier than usual, at 10 am, on select Thursdays each month. ‘Relaxed’ events are specially curated drop-in sessions for people with autism spectrum conditions and their families and carers, so they can enjoy the arts together in a stress-free environment. 

During that hour people can benefit from reduced noise levels in the gallery, alterations to lighting and the support of trained staff who are there to ensure that the space is as accessible as possible for all. 

Relaxed events are also suitable for people with sensory conditions, learning difficulties or other complex needs who would benefit from a calm and friendly space. There will also be a ‘chill out’ zone for people who might need to take a break during their visit. 

Jerwood Gallery has been working on this new programme with Aspens, who provide support to children, young people and adults with a range of disabilities, complex needs and those on the autism spectrum.
