Ticket to Ride is back for Learning Disability Week 2015!

Ticket to Ride is returning to Liverpool to spend 12 great weeks in the Museum of Liverpool! We are very excited to have Ticket to Ride return with the support from Making Sense and the Arts Council Funding and this year it looks to be even better!

If you didn’t get to see Ticket to Ride when it was in Liverpool Lime Street two years ago, you missed out, but don’t worry you have another chance to experience this amazing project.

Ticket to Ride June - September 2015

Ticket to Ride

Ticket to Ride came from Ticky Lowe, director of Making Sense CIC, and Mencap Liverpool coming together to do an interactive arts project that allowed people to see, hear and feel journeys on public transport from the perspective of someone with a learning disability.
Ticky Lowe worked with people with a learning disability to film them on journeys using public transport.

They recorded sound and what the person was looking at the give a personal experience.
Ticky also made a ‘Pod’ that people could go inside of to watch the two minute videos and hear and feel peoples experiences. The Pod is now known as Ticket to Ride and has a bus seat inside and a ‘window’ that plays the videos.

Making Sense has been working with Mencap Liverpool, House of Memories, St Vincent’s School and the Arts Council England to bring Ticket to Ride to the Museum of Liverpool, make new boards for it and making four new videos!

Ticket to Ride now not only plays videos from people with a learning disability but also people who are visually impaired and from someone living with Dementia.
Ticket to Ride is at the 1st floor of the Museum of Liverpool for 12 weeks Monday 15th June to Friday 4th September.

Come and meet our volunteers who will be happy to talk to you and you will get the chance to experience the Ticket to Ride Pod for yourself.
