Two practitioners, one Deaf and one hearing, offer an introduction to Deaf culture, practical steps for providing Deaf people with a warm welcome at your theatre, and some basic British Sign Language along with strategies to facilitate communication between Deaf and hearing people.
Suitable for all, this practical session will equip you to develop your theatre as a space that Deaf people want to use and be a part of.
"I really enjoyed this course and feel much more confident about communicating with Deaf people"
"It was BRILLIANT! I genuinely don’t think we’ve had a staff training session that’s taken their imagination and been so well received. It was well worth doing."
