The Art of Captioning: Making Access Work

25 May 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


You are invited to join us online for a lunchtime panel discussion, Making Access Work, the first in a series from The Art of Captioning.

Join us between 12.30-2pm for a discussion about access work with guest panellists Elaine Lillian Joseph and Nina Thomas and Natasha Trantom.

In this conversation, we will explore arts access from the perspective of those who translate, interpret and describe sound and image. Contributors include access workers who specialise in captioning, audio description and BSL interpreting in art contexts, and artists who are also accessibility-activists. By bringing together those who make access their work, we hope to open a conversation about how arts access might develop.

This event is open to all, but may be of special interest to artists and arts institutions keen to understand the nature of access work.

Making Access Work will be streamed online, more information on how to access the talk will be sent to you closer to the date.

This event is a part of a series across 2022 supported by the British Art Network.


  • This event will be live-captioned and BSL interpreted.
  • The event will be 90 minutes long with a comfort break. The panelists will first present for 15 minutes each followed by a 10 minute break and the remaining time given to in-conversation and questions.
  • The event will be introduced by Hannah Wallis (Wysing Arts Centre) and chaired by Sarah Hayden (Voices in the Gallery).

If you have any questions or further access requirements, please email Hannah on [email protected].

More information and booking is available via Eventbrite.
