Talk: Protest and Practice
An online talk and screening exploring captioning as protest and in practice with historian and disability scholar-activist, Jaipreet Virdi and creative captioners, Collective Text.
In this event, Jaipreet Virdi considers the social history of captioning and its roots in resistance, while Collective Text discuss their collaborative work as a form of protest.
This event is part of Caption Conscious Ecology, a series of talks and workshops advocating for the role of captioning in the production and display of moving-image work. Bringing scholars from D/deaf Studies and Critical Disability Studies together with artists and access workers, this series prompts conversations on the history, function, practical provision, and creative potentiality of captioning. It invites artists and arts organisers to explore how and why to embed captioning in artistic and curatorial practice.
Organised by Nottingham Contemporary and Voices in the Gallery.
