During the St Fagans conference on museum management, Linda Nilsen Ask, gave the audience a clear and focused presentation on the work that Rogaland County Council are doing to ensure that their public spaces are accessible to all.

The talk identified a range of different user groups that require specific attention and demonstrated an icon-based system that made it easy for them to identify public areas that were tailored for their needs.

The themes which Linda presented matched closely those that St Fagans has been struggling with in recent years, particularly those relating to path gradients and surfacing, ramps and stairs, and lighting levels.
