Access and inclusion
Audio description (AD) is the auditory narration of visual aspects of live events, theatre performances, exhibitions, tours and media such as film and video. AD is prepared and delivered by qualified audio describers. Provided during gaps in dialogue, AD is a tool that enhances access to people who are blind or have low vision and can benefit people with Autism, multisensory or learning disabilities.

Tactile tours are available to people who are blind or have low vision to equitably access and enjoy arts and cultural events in theatres, galleries, museums and public spaces and can benefit people with Autism, multisensory or learning disabilities, and are offered at a time during the exhibition or event period, or prior to a performance. With a trained describer guide attendees can journey through different physical spaces to understand dimension, layout and scale, interact with different objects to feel shape, texture and weight and have the opportunity to meet with different artists or people discussing and sharing their work.
