Blind Talent: Resources for Actors, Artists and Performers

When it comes to representations of blindness in TV, film and other forms of entertainment, there’s no match for the real thing. It’s LightHouse’s mission to support people who are blind or have low vision in their passions, and we work to connect talented individuals with opportunities in the entertainment, advertising and media industries.

Our database of blind talent covers a wide range of demographic and skill levels, and we regularly consult with producers and casting agents to refer for roles. Please note: we do not advertise unpaid work or cast student documentaries via this database.
