THEATRE AND ACCESSIBILITY IN A DIGITAL WORLD

The Arts Club Theatre Company in partnership with the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival will host a two-day symposium titled “Theatre and Accessibility in a Digital World.”

The goal of this symposium is to explore the question “How can we use digital technology to provide access for theatre patrons, artists and community members living with disabilities who currently encounter barriers to the traditional theatre experience?”

Using the facilities and resources of the BMO Theatre Centre in Vancouver, this symposium will invite influencers, creators, artists, and administrators (who are local and from other area of Canada) to come together and share ideas, challenges, and successes in reference to the use of digital strategies to increase inclusivity in theatre environments.

This symposium is made possible by the generous support from the Canada Council’s Digital Strategy Fund.
