Fingerworks for Fireworks 2019


Learn and practice VocalEye’s innovative tactile approach to describing fireworks for people who are blind and partially sighted with the creators of the technique, Collin van Uchelen and Steph Kirkland.

This workshop will introduce pyrotechnical terms and verbal vocabulary in conjunction with tactile techniques to describe common and unusual effects. Participants will hone their skills with a partner. People with sight loss are invited to attend, to experience the technique and to give feedback.

Newly trained and returning fireworks describers will have the opportunity to describe Team Canada at the Honda Celebration of Light in English Bay on Wednesday, July 31, 2019.
