The DIG Collective is dedicated to making our practice more accessible. We would love to offer our support to other arts practitioners wishing to do the same, and we also welcome feedback from the community to continually help us improve.
This is why we are excited to launch our open-source Disability Action Plan. As independent artists accessibility can feel like an overwhelming and expensive endeavour. This action plan hopes to combat this perception, and is tailored specifically to support unfunded independent theatre companies and artists.
If you have feedback or questions about this document we would love to hear from you.
Below are also number of resources that we use to plan our events and feature as appendices in our Disability Action Plan. These resources have been compiled from a number of sources but are by no means the definitive guide – we offer it to you as a work in progress for all of us to develop. If you have any questions or would like Microsoft Word version of our Access resources, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our contact form.
We have also been using custom made DIY Audio Description technology to audio describe our performances. This has been created in partnership with Michael Kelly from MAK-TRACK Audio. Design plans and support for building your own, affordable Audio Description technology will be made publicly soon, so Watch This Space and start planning your next fully accessible, audio described event.
