Are you interested in making accessible theatre? Can we help?

This is a difficult time for everyone, but we want to use this moment to think about what we want the future of Scottish theatre to look like.

We want to talk about why you are interested in making accessible work and what you think are the barriers to doing so. Whether you’re interested in creating more accessible performances, events or projects, we want to hear from you. We want to support you to come together and move forward in making accessible theatre.

This working group is for theatre makers in Scotland who have an interest in creating accessible work, whether you’re an artist, actor, dancer, director, producer, writer, choreographer or designer. All levels of experience are welcome.

The working group is facillitated by BOP and Andy Edwards, Andy is a theatre-maker, playwright and dramaturg whose recent work includes “In Burrows” – an improvised duet with Sign Language Interpreter Amy Cheskin.

Following Make It Accessible #1, the first meeting of our working group, we have invited four arts practitioners to present case studies about accessibility within their work. These case studies will consider a range of topics, from the integration of access within performance to the accessibility of entire festivals.

Make It Accessible #1 taught us that there are lots of people interested in making accessible work – and lots of people doing it already. This is a difficult time for everyone, but we want to use this moment to share our knowledge, experience and practice with each other.

This meeting is for anyone with an interest in creating accessible work. All levels of experience are welcome. You do not need to have attended last month’s session to join us.

To take part, follow the meeting link on our website on THURSDAY 28th MAY at 2PM. The group will run from 2PM – 4PM.

Attendance is free and unticketed but please confirm your attendance to callum@boptheatre.co.uk so we have an idea of numbers.

More information is available on our website.
