About this event

Join Artes Mundi’s Engagement Producers and audio describer Anne Hornsby for a series of interactive and conversation-led tours of Artes Mundi 9. Designed for Blind and Visually Impaired people, each session will take place live on zoom and last for an hour with fifteen minutes for feedback at the end. In each section we will look at a selection of artworks or moments from the shortlisted Artes Mundi 9 artists, and your ideas and questions will be welcome throughout.

Audio descriptions will be made available to listen to after the events on artesmundi.org.

Anne Hornsby is a pioneer of UK Audio Description, having introduced the second audio description service in England to the Octagon Theatre, Bolton,  in 1989.  She launched Mind's Eye in 1992 to offer audio description for theatres, galleries, museums, dance, film festivals and online content.  She has won two awards for her work and is an accredited trainer. Prior to lockdown, she was audio describing over 100 events a year in addition to offering training on a regular basis.  She is very much looking forward to a return trip to Wales, albeit virtually, and expanding access to the exhibition.

This event will be Audio-described, if you would like to discuss the event beforehand or have any additional support needs please email info@artesmundi.org or call 02920 573212 and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Teithiau sain-ddisgrifiad ar-lein Artes Mundi 9

Ymunwch â Chynhyrchwyr Ymgysylltu Artes Mundi a'r sain-ddisgrifiwr Anne Hornsby ar gyfres o deithiau a sgyrsiau rhyngweithiol o Artes Mundi 9. Mae'r teithiau ar gyfer pobl ddall a phobl â nam ar eu golwg, a bydd pob sesiwn yn cael ei chynnal yn fyw ar zoom ac yn para am awr gyda chwarter awr ar gyfer adborth ar y diwedd. Ym mhob adran byddwn yn edrych ar ddetholiad o weithiau celf neu eiliadau gan yr artistiaid ar restr fer Artes Mundi 9, a bydd croeso i'ch syniadau a'ch cwestiynau drwyddi draw.

Bydd sain-ddisgrifiadau ar gael i wrando arnynt ar ôl y digwyddiadau.

Mae Anne Hornsby yn arloeswr ym maes sain-ddisgrifio yn y DU, ac roedd yn gyfrifol am gyflwyno'r ail wasanaeth sain-ddisgrifio yn Lloegr yn Theatr Octagon, Bolton, ym 1989. Lansiodd Mind's Eye ym 1992 i gynnig sain-ddisgrifiad ar gyfer theatrau, orielau, amgueddfeydd, dawns, gwyliau ffilm a chynnwys ar-lein. Mae hi wedi ennill dwy wobr am ei gwaith ac mae'n hyfforddwr achrededig. Cyn y cyfyngiadau symud, roedd hi'n sain-ddisgrifio dros 100 o ddigwyddiadau'r flwyddyn yn ogystal â chynnig hyfforddiant yn rheolaidd. Mae hi'n edrych ymlaen yn fawr at ddychwelyd i Gymru, er yn rhithwir, ac ehangu mynediad i'r arddangosfa.
