Join Artes Mundi’s Engagement Producers and audio describer Anne Hornsby for an interactive and conversation-led tours of Artes Mundi 9. In this tour we will explore the work of Beatriz Santiago Muñoz.
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. At each event 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.
During the event we will have time to discuss five moments from art films presented in the Artes Mundi 9 exhibition by Beatriz Santiago Muñoz.
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.
Image description: A screen in a dark space shows the image of a sunset over water, soft pink and orange clouds are reflected in the ocean. There are darker heavier clouds hanging just above a silhouette of an island. The whole image has been flipped 90° so the horizon line is now sitting vertically across the screen.
