Helping others ‘see’ theatre through your eyes

20 August, 2010 by 1 Comment

Greenroom has heard that Vision Australia is looking for some observant and articulate volunteers with a passion for the arts. That’s you, isn’t it?

Vision Australia in partnership with Access Arts Queensland will shortly introduce its Audio Description Services for designated performances at QPAC. Audio description is the art of putting into words the picture or the action that a sighted person is viewing. Like signed performances for people with varying levels of hearing impairment, audio description will help blind people and those with low vision to enjoy the excitement of live performance.  It’s a great way for those of us who can see and hear onstage action to share our own love for the performing arts with others – perhaps for their first time.

If you can find the words to describe onstage action as it’s happening, or would like to – Vision Australia offers comprehensive training and ongoing support, then you might want to get along to the information session being held at Vision Australia, 373 Old Cleveland Road, Coorparoo on Thursday 2 September from 10.30-12.30

If you’d like more information, or want to let them know you’re coming, please get in touch with Richard Attwater on 37272277 or email him Richard.attwater@visionaustralia.org

Sounds like something theatre lovers would enjoy.
