I sailed the Sargasso Sea!

In August 2010 I began a year long Fellowship at Toronto’s largest multidisciplinary festival, Luminato. Midway through I started to chat with the producer of Visual arts, Robert Vanderberg about doing audio description for  visually impaired patrons. With the festivals support and though partnerships with Theatre Local and Rose Jacobsen through PicassoPro/Creative Trust, I ended up writing, recording and producing a downloadable MP3 with an audio description of Philip Beesley’s SARGASSO which was downloaded over 300 times in 10 days! This project was such a thrill, making the work accessible to so many more patrons and going to the artist’s studio and talking about his work so I could get the vocabulary right was a total treat.
