Writing Descriptive Introductions

Hosted by VocalEye

Make your events more accessible for people who are blind and partially sighted with a pre-show descriptive introduction.

This workshop will explore how to gather pre-show information, what to include in descriptive introductions and how they can best serve our audience. The workshop will include discussion of the description of sets, characters and costumes, puppetry and dance. In addition, we will explore the most recent developments in describing diversity.

Suitable for audio describers of all levels, AD users and those interested in learning more about arts access.

Event will be recorded if you are unable to attend live.
