Lowering Barriers for Blind and Partially Sighted Audience Members

from 25.00

October 4: 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 pm

This workshop will define many of the barriers that people who are blind and partially sighted encounter when attending live performances and other public arts and cultural events. VocalEye will share a variety of methods and approaches for lowering these barriers to participation and inclusion. 

The workshop will be led by VocalEye's founder and executive director, Steph Kirkland. Steph has been a member of Vancouver's professional theatre scene for more than 30 years. She is the recipient of several Jessie awards and most recently was honoured with the Achievement Award in Audio Description International from The American Council of the Blind “for outstanding contributions to the establishment and/or continued development of significant audio description programs.”
