Page structure

‘Skip to content’

In the top right corner of all pages is a ‘skip to content’ link . This allows assistive device users to quickly skip over the site navigation to the page content.

Site navigation

The site navigation appears on the left side of all pages except the home page. The navigation items are displayed as a list of links.

Content

The main content appears to the right of the site navigation on all pages except the home page.

Footer information

At the bottom of the page are links to our accessibility (this page), acknowledgements, credits, copyright and disclaimer pages.

Links

The content of all text-based links has been written clearly and concisely to aid users with assistive devices.

Images

Concise text alternatives have been provided for all content-related images. Images that are purely decorative have not been given text alternatives.

Colour

Colours have been chosen to provide good contrast between text and backgrounds. We have avoided colour combinations that are known to cause difficulties for people with vision impairment.

Artist Directory

This allows you to upload your details. You can also display images of your art and work via your Flickr account. If you don’t have a Flickr account, you can set one up – it’s easy and free.

Flickr is an online photo management and sharing tool. You can add notes and tags to each photo, allowing you to find and sort images using Flickr tags.

What are Flickr tags? Quite simply, Flickr tags are a way to organize your images. That’s it, nothing fancy. For instance, if you have uploaded a photo of dancing cats, you will probably want to categorize that photo as “dancing cats”. That way other people looking for dancing cats can find your image.
