CREATING AUDIO DESCRIPTION FOR YOUR SHOW
FACILITATED BY SUSAN WILLIAMS
Audio Description provides access to theatre for blind and low vision audience members. Find out what options are available, from a commentary via earpiece, to epic world-building the whole audience can enjoy, through to soundscapes and radio plays. Thinking about access creates a rich new layer to your storytelling. Learn the basics, practice creating your own audio description, and discover where to find more information. Susan Williams is a functionally blind theatre maker who includes audio description in their projects, uses audio description to watch shows and movies, and is passionate about increasing the number of audio described shows in Wellington. This workshop was first developed with support from Barbarian Productions.
