ADA’s workshops offer describers valuable networking opportunities as well as a chance to develop their expertise. They are held 3-4 times per year, alternating between London and regional venues and focus on specific topics.
A typical half-day workshop includes a presentation by a specialist in the field (for example, choreographer, fight director, theatre designer, curator), contributions by experienced describers and audio description users, and group work followed by feedback.
Recent workshops have included: Describing Dance; Fights; Set and Costume Design; Recording Introductions to Audio Described Performances and Audio Description for the Visual Arts.
Maximum number of participants: 12-20 (depending on topic and facilities required)
Fee: £20 - £40 per participant (depending on room hire charges). Membership discounts apply.
