Audio description and subtitles against exclusion
The lack of effective solutions in access to culture and culture-forming activities by people with disabilities is undoubtedly a problem in modern Europe. There are countries where people with disabilities are still not “full citizens” due to the lack of solutions enabling active participation in social/ cultural life.
The task of the “Audio description and subtitles against exclusion” project is to ensure that every resident of countries participating in the project has such right to equality, non-discrimination and active participation in cultural activities that are so important for proper functioning in society. In our opinion, audio description and subtitles for the deaf should be the standard in the functioning of all European cultural institutions.
Thus, the main goal of the project is to improve the qualifications and skills of the culture employees in creating audio description and subtitles for the hearing impaired, but at the same time adjusting the program offer (by preparing audio description and subtitles) to the reception by the blind and deaf. Workshops on creating audio description for films, performances, visual arts and subtitling will be organized.
The intellectual result will be a textbook containing theory and practical advices on how to create audio description and subtitles for the hearing impaired.
