Creative Audio Description for outdoor arts
1.5 hours with a break
Karina Jones, visually impaired actor, aerialist, Audio Description consultant and vocal coach, will take you through how to embed Audio Description into your show. The session will be looking at different audio description techniques and considering the voice of the audio describer, where the audio description comes from and how it can be weaved into your work. In preparation for the session, think about how you would describe yourself…what is important to know about you?
