Access All Arts
Access and Audio Description Tours
DADAA piloted its Access All Arts program in 2016 with great success and will be offering a more extensive program in 2017. The program aims to increase access to arts and cultural activiites for people who are blind, vision impaired or deafblind.
Access All Arts is an Audio Description program, with Access Tours also offered in some cases. For live events and performances, audio description delivers a live verbal commentary via a personal headset providing information on the action and visual elements as it unfolds.
