Workshop: Captioning for Artists

Book Now

Join us for a live, online workshop for artists to experiment with the poetics and pragmatics of captioning.

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.
