AD Across the Arts
(Co-Sponsor: ACB Friends in Art)
Moderator: Dr. Tabitha Kenlon, ACB Audio Description Project Coordinator
Panelists: Leigh Jackson, Director, IDEA Programming, People’s Light; Lisa B. Lewis, Founder, Executive Director, Omnium: A Bold New Circus; and Mark Osborne, Director, Visitor and Volunteer Services, Holocaust Museum Houston
While film and tv might be the most well-known audio described art form, many arts and entertainment venues use AD as well. Live theatre and dance performances, museums, parks, and even the circus provide AD to increase accessibility. Panelists will share some of the challenges and the excitement of bringing all the arts to life for people who are blind or have low vision.
