Access all senses: experiencing art as a blind, partially sighted or deaf person

Access all senses: experiencing art as a blind, partially sighted or deaf person
Culture

This event will introduce visitors to audio description and British Sign Language (BSL) as alternative modes of communication for viewing and talking about art. Audio describers translate visual art into verbal English to create an appropriate sensory experience for blind and partially sighted people. They will demonstrate how this medium can also enhance the experience for sighted viewers as well. Deaf art guides will demonstrate the visual and spatial aspects of BSL in relation to art (a BSL interpreter will provide a voiceover and facilitate dialogue). The event will be based in Rooms 18a and 18b, adjacent to the Parthenon gallery.
