The Inner Vision Orchestra National Tour Report, Dr. Christian C. Clerk, 2014

Research carried out by anthropologist Dr. Christian C. Clerk who accompanied the Inner Vision Orchestra on their first national tour.

This report was commissioned by Baluji Shrivastav for the Arts Council of England. It was written on the basis of participant observation, survey responses and informal interviews, and focuses upon the experience of stakeholders in different aspects of the first Inner Vision Orchestra tour – to consider how their interests were met and how these might be further promoted in future activities. It reflects on the significance for the future planning of the Inner Vision Orchestra and, more generally, on the requirements of blind and partially-sighted performers taking part in such a tour, and the practicalities involved in its organisation.
