National Theatre Wales is committed to furthering accessibility, to its work, its workforce and to the sector as a whole.
We ensure along every step of our journey that we remain physically accessible, taking care and consideration when choosing sites and venues for our work. With site-located work this may be a challenge, but one accepted willingly.
We have and continue to program for our shows BSL, Audio Described, Live Speech to Text, Dementia Friendly and Relaxed Performances and have even developed our own system for captioning on iPads. This system has been provided free to companies across Wales resulting in not just a larger array of captioned theatre across Wales, but also influencing other companies to follow suit.
We work closely with organisations such as Disability Arts Cymru and have also set up a quarterly Access Forum that brings together organisations, artists, participants and public to discuss ways to make the sector more inclusive. The access forum is continuing to grow and build its network with forums being planned across Wales. For more information on this and to join the access forum mailing list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
