Oliver is joined by Maud Rowell, blind freelance journalist and author of Blind Spot: Exploring and Educating on Blindness, to discuss Infrastructure for the Blind. Maud’s upcoming James Holman prize-winning project, ‘Where Birds Won’t Go’, will see her independently travel to the most remote regions of Japan and write a book on her experiences, all the while demonstrating that accessible public infrastructure can benefit us all. She also lays out how informed attitudes towards blind people go a long way to supporting independence.

Read Maud’s book, Blind Spot: Exploring and Educating on Blindness.
