Visitors and residents of Conwy will be able to access British Sign Language (BSL) heritage interpretation videos at some of the town's key locations.

The Trilingual Conwy Culture Centre, currently under construction and due to be completed in autumn 2019, project has secured £7,892 which will be put towards trialling the use of QR codes to take visitors to the HistoryPoints website on their tablet or smartphone, where they can access BSL Videos.

QR code plaques will be on display at key locations at the Culture Centre, and also at historic sites in the town, including Plas Mawr and Britain’s Smallest House.

The project will give equal prominence to BSL alongside Welsh and English interpretation at the new culture centre and will also be dementia friendly.

It will also include accessible signage and lighting for the exhibition cases.

Chair of the Conwy Local Action Group, cllr Goronwy Edwards, said: “We’re excited to watch the progress of this pilot project, which will use LEADER funding to test an innovative way of bringing our heritage to life for broader audiences.”

Conwy’s cabinet member for communities, cllr Mark Baker, said: “Conwy’s rich culture and heritage belongs to everyone, and we want the new culture centre to lead the way in bringing our county’s objects, stories and historic sites to life by working closely with the many different communities we serve.”

Conwy County Borough Council (CCBC) has been working with the Centre of Sign Sight Sound the HistoryPoints website to create the BSL heritage interpretation videos.
