How do we use our senses to interact with the world around us? How do multisensory experiences create more access? We often ignore one of our most powerful senses – smell. But what if we could recognize, understand, and communicate aroma? How might we connect with ourselves and the world around us in more ways?
Join Cooper Hewitt, Tealeaves, and Microsoft for a series of scent-based experiences and aromatherapy explorations that apply the Microsoft inclusive design principles to our most neglected sense.
This program coincides with Global Accessibility Awareness Day which aims to promote discussion and education around disability inclusion. Museum admission included.
Accessibility initiatives are made possible by the generous support of Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional funding is also provided by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
