Audio Description for The Apocalypse Reading Room By Dot Alma

The Apocalypse Reading Room is an installation by speculative writer and artist Ama Josephine Budge: an on-site library, a world of talking stories in the face of environmental and social transformation, a gathering of all the books we might need to change the end of the world…

View Event

The Apocalypse Reading Room transforms a public arts space into a post-apocalyptic library installation filled with books for all ages, exploring ways to build, transform, rethink, rewrite and reimagine our futures. The Apocalypse Reading Room is activated by two artists, Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson and Mohammed Z Rahman, who have been selected for a three-month residency programme at Artsadmin’s home, Toynbee Studios.

You can explore the reading room in person at Toynbee Studios from 1 July – 30 September 2021 when the library is installed in the Arts Bar & Cafe.

Listen to the audio description on your own device with your own headphones, or on an ipad in the Apocalypse Reading Room which is available behind the bar.
