Why is it important?
Providing access means getting rid of attitudinal and physical barriers that have always stopped disabled, Deaf and neurodivergent people going to theatre or engaging with the arts, so that as many people as possible can experience our work. Providing creative access means that you are including access tools in your work in a creative way - they are part of your overall vision and design rather than bolted on like an exclusive extra that’s just for ‘those people who need it.’
When we use access creatively everyone is more likely to engage with and enjoy our work. This guide will show you that access is a creative opportunity - another creative tool for you to use - and not a barrier.
