The Art of Captioning: Introduction to Caption-writing and Caption Consultation

29 June 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Join us for a workshop that explores different aspects and specificities for approaching caption writing and consultation with practical exercises that target particular skills in order to begin interpreting and consulting on captions. The workshop will be led by Care-fuffle Working Group member Anita Wolska-Kaslow, with support from artist and activist Nina Thomas.

This workshop will introduce ways to start thinking about implementing captions in moving image work, from early preparations for approaching caption-writing to exercises concerning interpreting and describing sound work. It is a practical and interactive workshop where participants will have an opportunity to engage in creative tasks and experiment with translating sound into captions to encourage them to start forming their own methods for caption-writing, all in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere.

This event will be live-captioned and BSL interpreted. The event will be 90 minutes long with a 10-minute comfort break halfway through. If you have any questions or further access requirements, please email Hannah on [email protected]

Spaces are limited and advanced booking is required. You can register for a free ticket via Eventbrite.
