Accessibility On Stage and Off will be happening on April 4th at 12pm on-line and we’d love for you to join in on the discussion. Social distancing may be in place but we can still have this important dialogue!
We hope all is well and that you’re settled into this new temporary normal. While our team is staying busy working remotely we are excited to carry on with our planned roundtable on the topic of accessibility both on stages and off stage. We are grateful to be working in partnership with Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba and Sick + Twisted Theatre to adapt to a creative virtual delivery method. Through the online program Zoom, we will host this discussion and bring together a group of panelists to share their experiences. This wonderful group of people consists of industry experts, performers and a PhD Professor from the University of Manitoba. Sick + Twisted Artistic Director Debbie Patterson will be our fabulous moderator!
Here are the details:
Accessibility: On Stage and Off
April 4th, 2020 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Roundtable Discussion on Zoom
Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba, Sarasvàti Productions and Sick + Twisted Theatre present a discussion on accessibility from the comfort of your own home!
More is being done to address accessibility in theatre and the arts in Winnipeg, but is it enough? How accessible are performances for audiences? How exclusionary are the spaces and processes we use in making theatre? Why is the inclusion of artists with disabilities essential to the continued development of the art form? Join us for a frank discussion with guest artists and Disability advocates. Join the live discussion on Zoom, or watch/listen via Facebook livestream. ASL interpretation will be occurring live.
