We are excited to present a queer audio description workshop with Quiplash.
Quiplash was established to take space for queer crips (quips), further queer crip performance and encourage queer accessibility.
Audio description provides access for blind and visually impaired audiences. This workshop for LUX Scotland is aimed at providing an understanding of queer audio description for performance and artists’ moving image. The workshop will be useful for artists and creative practitioners who would like to learn more about audio description and how they might apply it to their practice.
The workshop will be split into two sessions, led by Amelia Lander-Cavallo with support from Al Lander-Cavallo, and members of the LUX Scotland team will also be in attendance.
Session 1: Wednesday 1 September, 10am – 1pm
The first session will cover disability awareness, providing a grounding from which to approach creative and queer audio description.
Session 2: Thursday 2 September, 10am – 1pm
The second session will cover audio description for performance and artists’ moving image, providing an overview of Quiplash’s approach to audio description and its application.
We recommend that participants attend both sessions, if possible, to gain the most from the training with Quiplash.
How to apply
We are offering 10 free places to SUPERLUX members, our free membership scheme for artists based in Scotland. Find out more about how to become a SUPERLUX member here.
As spaces are limited, participants will be selected on the basis of their enthusiasm for incorporating audio description into their practice. We will also seek to select a range of individuals from across Scotland.
Deadline for applications: Monday 9 August, 5pm

The event will be held on Zoom, with the option of live captions. There will be a break on the hour, every hour.
