Can technology make an effective difference in promoting equality and inclusion – or are attitudes to access still the biggest barrier?
Join us for a RSA Performing Arts Network event using the RSA Ideas format. Apply to share your arts for social change idea and receive support from the network to turn it into action.
Over the last few decades, the use of technology such as captioning and audio description has played a large part in making the arts and culture much more accessible to Deaf and disabled audiences. Emerging technologies such as virtual and augmented reality also offer exciting possibilities for increasing access to the arts. But, in this day and age, are we relying too much on technology and forgetting a more human centred approach? And how can the two complement each other?
See Graeae’s award winning home and hear how they have been pioneering creative access.
The evening will begin with the opportunity to hear from Jenny Sealey, Artistic Director of Graeae, about how the company has been at the forefront of pioneering creative access since 1980. It will then will follow the RSA Ideas format of quick fire pitches and networking.
If you have a 5 minute pitch idea please let event leaders know. All are welcome, and this event is free to attend. Fellows and non-Fellows can get involved, ideas big or small.
