A theatre maker’s attempt to make his work more accessible, and how venues/organisations might be able to help
Paul O’Donnell is a solo theatre maker and over the past year, has been using Talking Birds’ accessibility tool The Difference Engine to deliver captioning and audio description on every performance of the UK tour of his show We’ve Got Each Other. With funding from Arts Council England, he has created a resource pack for artists, companies and organisations to share the learning and experience he gained during the project. It also includes case studies and a list of other resources.
The pack can be downloaded here: http://bit.ly/AccessingPack
This has been a journey for everyone involved and will continue to be so. We don’t claim to be experts and we don’t have all the answers; we value any comments and feedback.
