Australia’s galleries, museums and theatres are being called on to participate in a national survey of how audio description (AD) is used to bring access to cultural venues for people who are blind or vision impaired.

The Arts Access Australia survey is aimed at all arts and cultural venues regardless of whether they currently offer audio description. Taking between five and ten minutes to complete, the survey will gauge the level of audio description offered compared to other access services venues are providing.

Exhibition celebrates the art of audio description

no
Show on home page

An art gallery in Poland has shown an exhibition featuring only audio description of artworks. The exhibition is intended to reveal how visual art is made accessible for people who are blind or vision impaired and celebrate audio description as an art form in its own right.

The exhibition, Art Never Seen, formed part of a public relations campaign for the Audiodescription Foundation. It was promoted as a regular art exhibition. When people arrived at one of Warsaw’s trendiest galleries, they were surprised to find only headphones hanging on the walls. Through the headphones, visitors heard descriptions of what each piece of art looks like.
