Led by Susan Griffiths (Community Engagement Officer) and Caroline Moreau (Volunteer and Outreach Officer), Oxford University Museums. As part of an RNIB-led, HLF -funded project 'Sensing Culture', the Oxford University Museums have been training their volunteer tour-guides to offer audio-descriptive elements. In this practical workshop we aim to introduce participants to audio description, giving them a taster of a useful skill for welcoming blind and partially sighted museum visitors, but also for general public engagement. It is particularly useful for people involved with delivering tours and object-handling sessions, but may also be of interest to those involved with writing exhibition text, creating audio guides, trails and apps.


Full agenda tbc & circulated to the guest list closer to the time.

Spaces are limited to 30 for the Network meeting, 20 for the Audio training and to two people per organisation, so be quick and get the date in your diaries! Please note, depending on interest in the Audio description training, we may limit places on this to one person per organisation.
