Our region is full of incredible public works of art, but they remain inaccessible to community members who are blind or partially sighted. MindsEye wants to change that, and we are calling on YOU to help!

Become a community collaborator today by submitting a photo of public art in the area.

About The Project

This innovative initiative aims to transform access to public artwork through community collaboration and audio descriptive services. Embracing a “nothing about us without us” approach, individuals who are blind or partially sighted will not only experience local artwork through the final audio description recordings but will also be key collaborators in the production process.

The public Artwork Accessibility Project is funded in part by the Arts and Education Council through the Arts and Healing Initiative.

How It Works

  1. Community members photograph public works of art and submit them to MindsEye.
  2. Our team of describers write descriptions for each photo, which are then adapted for our blind or partially sighted narrraatorrs.
  3. Using the braille scripts our collaborators who are blind or partially sighted record the audio description.
  4. The recordings and photos are finally compiled for publishing in various digital formats that anyone can access and enjoy at no cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! However, we would love for as many collaborators as possible to contribute. If you have already submitted a piece and know of other pieces that will be great additions to this project, share the love – tell your friends and family so they can go snap a photo to submit.
