We are providing Audio Description Workshop and professional comments for the "Sound Of Image" Exhibition Artists. You are welocme to visit the Exhibition, listen to the Audio Description (created by Artists) and join the Sharing + Forum on 14 Dec 2013 (Sat).


Programme Description

Audio description (AD) is a powerful tool for making visual information accessible to people with visual impairment. Hence, more and more exhibitions provide AD for people with visual impairment to enjoy the visual art programmes. The general visual artists might think that the textual description of the artwork could not reconstruct the real artwork, however, if people with visual impairment could only appreciate visual art through AD, the textual description of the artwork will become a very important media for them to enjoy the art.


In this Exhibiton, a group of visual artists will create their own "Audio Description" for their exhibits and explore the links between AD and visual art.
