The Inclusion Discourse Series
The “Inclusion Discourse Series” is a series of online talks on culture, art, and inclusive practices.
Aiming to enhance the discussion about the inclusion of audiences that are usually excluded from experiencing culture, Off Stream invited several experts to share methodologies and good practices through a series of video-talks.
The four invited speakers talk about the Principles of Universal Design and Audio Description Methodologies, present projects addressed to artists on how to make their works accessible to people with visual impairment and raise issues arising from the creation of tactile representations of artworks related to the protection of Intellectual Property Law.
