an audio description workshop with Rawcus and Vitae Veritas
Join Vitae Veritas and Rawcus for this inclusive and participatory workshop that explores audio description in performance. Audio description is the narration of visual aspects of theatre, film, media, and art for people who are blind or have low vision. Vitae Veritas and Rawcus have partnered together to research how the tools and techniques of audio description can support creative exchange between diverse artists while enhancing audience accessibility. Through this workshop you’ll learn the basics of audio description and discover its potential in performance-making through practical exercises.
This workshop is appropriate for anyone 18+ who is an artist, performer or performance maker and is interested in access and inclusion. Artists of all disciplines and experience levels are encouraged to apply! The workshop will include explorations that utilise body, voice, sign, sound, writing and the senses, working collaboratively with the Rawcus Ensemble and Vitae Veritas audio describers. The workshop will be Auslan interpreted.
Places are limited, so registration is required.
