Thanks to the tireless efforts of our Audio Description volunteers and MindsEye Director of Arts and Culture Magan Harms, 2022 has been our biggest year ever for Audio Description, and last month was our busiest to date. All told, MindsEye had a total of 29 Audio Described events in June, including a stretch of one to two events per day from June 8 through June 19 and a three-event day on June 25!

Magan and our volunteers have been working hard to bring accessibility to venues such as Opera Theater of St. Louis, St. Louis Shakespeare Festival, Looking Glass Playhouse, New Jewish Theatre, Metro Theater Company, Stages St. Louis, The Muny, Circus Flora, and even Busch Stadium.
