Friday, September 17, 2021
- Talk Description to Me, Podcast Hosts, Christine Malec and JJ Hunt. We will learn more about the unique podcast where the visuals of current events and the world around us get hashed out in description-rich conversations. In Talk Description to Me, discussions plunge into current events and topical issues to explore the content of important images and help place vivid descriptions in their cultural context. The show enhances our ability to connect with the vision-centric world.
- Resolutions, First Reading, Carla Hayes, PCB Parliamentary Team.
- Enhancing Architectural Accessibility. Chris Downey, Architecture for the Blind. As an experienced architect who lost his vision, Chris provides accessibility advice to builders. He recently consulted on the UPMC Vision Rehabilitation Hospital in Pittsburgh. He will share tips for the kinds of blind-friendly features we should be advocating for when buildings are constructed or renovated.
- Two Truths and a Tall Tale, hosted by Mary Ann Grignon, sponsored by the Golden Triangle Council of the Blind. This game is all about faking out your peers. Contestants will be given one minute to tell two true statements and one tall tale about themselves. Then the inquisition panel gets two minutes to ask questions and expose which is the tall tale. Listen carefully from the audience because you’ll be the judge of which story is pure fiction.
