From University College London’s ‘Disability and the Cultural Sector’ seminar series, Prof. Hannah Thompson, will explore what happens when audio description moves from access provision to artistic intervention and asks who has the right to describe or be described.

Using the concept of ‘blindness gain’, this presentation discusses the benefits and disadvantages of inclusive, co-created description with reference to several examples from the IDEA Project. Thompson explores what happens when audio description moves from access provision to artistic intervention and asks who has the right to describe or be described. She will consider the potential of novel techniques such as overt positionality, multiple descriptions and the audio describer’s ‘preface’ before thinking about what is at stake when audio description is repositioned as an essential part of the artistic experience for both blind and non-blind beholders.

This seminar will take place on the 25th May 2022 at 1:00 pm on Zoom (, and there is no need to register in advance. Live Captioning for the event will be provided by Stagetext.
