Consultancy and Training
Our inclusive team can support venues in assessing & improving attitudinal & physical access, as well as help producing organisations to embed access within their performance work.
We’ve already worked with WMC, RWCMD, Cascade Dance, Likely Story, Bath Spa University, Mess Up the Mess, University of Wales Trinity St David & Bluestone Wales, where we trained the Christmas Elves to be more confident in communicating with Deaf children. If you’d like to discuss how we can help your organisation, get in touch.
We also run training events for D/deaf, disabled & non-disabled creative professionals; offering opportunities for performers & theatre practitioners to hone their own skills. These have included:
- A week-long Clowning course with the esteemed John Wright.
- 2 week facilitator training course plus placement scheme for emerging disabled & non-disabled leaders.
- BSL level 1 intensive for arts professionals (lead by Sarona Training).
- Audio Description for theatre, lead by Dr Louise Fryer & Amelia Cavallo (1 week).
Beth is a fully trained audio describer and can be booked to audio describe your production or event. We also have the full technical kit required to audio describe events, which can be booked with our without Beth. Get in touch.
