Symposium 2020

Are you relaxed about relaxed performances? Do you know your quiet spaces from your Sonic Story?

Welcome to Taking Flight’s 5th Access Symposium, hosted by RCT Theatres and in collaboration with hynt. Funded by Arts Council of Wales, and generously supported by Dearborn Consulting LTD.

This symposium will explore all elements of creating the warmest of welcomes for everyone – especially for those people who may find traditional theatre etiquette a barrier. In the morning Jess Thom (Touretteshero) will present ‘A Warmer Welcome – Relaxed performances from Start to Finish’ on the theory and practice of relaxed performances. In the afternoon Derby theatre’s Access Manager Andrew Tinley will present on ‘The Barrier isn’t Access’- an exploration of simple, effective tools to make venues more relaxed in their engagement with artists, young people, staff and audiences. Delegates will leave with practical ways to make changes in their organisation or artistic practice.

This is an all day event. Tea and coffee will be provided.
