Multisensory Museum: Shivani Gulati

How can artists and designers create more multisensory experiences? OCADU Graduate Students in response to an Inclusive Design Multisensory Museum Course share their co-creative process of translating artworks in the AGO collection into multisensory objects. Students explore a wide variety of techniques to create an inclusive gallery experience in a series of Multisensory Museum Moments.

In this program, Shivani Gulati presents a multisensory translation of Storm over the Fields by Carl Schaefer (1937). She aims to have an accessible immersive experience for all the guests. To showcase her idea, Shivani will share a prototype of an immersive space using grass, mud and rubble. She will describe the journey and invite you to enjoy sound, smell, and texture elements that enhance the multi-sensory experience.

Shivani is pictured in this photo. She smiles, staring into the camera. She wears a vertical stripe shirt with pink, blue and white lines. She is pictured with long brown curly hair and thin wireframe glasses.


Shivani Gulati (she/her) is an Industrial designer from Mumbai, India. Currently in her first year of Inclusive Design at OCAD University. She believes in creating more inclusive and accessible space and products for all.
