Dr Lee Campbell’s research residency (29th August - 1st September) at The Brady Arts Centre in Whitechapel, developed through the Open Lab scheme at Barbican Guildhall, combines invited speaker presentations from academics and arts practitioners from all over the world, practical experiments and reflective discussions on the topic of vision impairment underpinned by these two key questions:
1) What could a cross-modal arts manifesto for blind/visually impaired persons look like/ feel like?
2) How can acts exploring visual negation be used to generate public pedagogy and what may it bring to the experience of removal of sight?
Contributors include artists Carali McCall and Adrian Lee, theatre director Nathan Geering, researcher and lecturer Dr Simon Hayhoe, and BBC Radio 3 audio describer Louise Fryer amongst others.
