Breaking out of the Box
A Partnership between Taking Flight Theatre Company and Hynt
Wales Millenium Centre, 2 July 2015 10am to 5pm
Following on from Breaking out of the Box in 2014, Taking Flight Theatre Company are partnering with Hynt to host a symposium at the Hijinx Unity Festival in Cardiff. This event
will bring together theatres, arts centres, performers, producers, companies and other creative professionals working across the performing arts to discuss barriers to access and diversity.
In 2015 we will be focusing on issues facing Deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences and
performers. Specifically we will be looking at:
- Training, recruitment and Visibility of Deaf or HoH performers
- Audience Development
- Accessible performances and Interpretation for Deaf and HoH audiences
This symposium develops the work of Hynt and Taking Flight Theatre Company in creating
and promoting good practice around accessible performances and increasing the diversity of our organisations, audiences and on our stages. Breaking Out of the Box will be a key event for anyone involved in programming or making work in Wales. The day will consist of
presentations and case studies as well as more focused break-out groups. There will also be a performance from StopGap Dance Company. Full agenda and speakers will follow soon.
If you are a venue, festival, producing company or artist you may also like to attend a
networking event hosted by Hijinx Unity on Friday the 3rd July.
