Join the Mass Cultural Council for a Community Conversation on the use of captions in theatre and performance!
Access to Theatre: Captions and Communications
Plymouth Library: Tuesday April 9; 5:30-7:30pm
(Plymouth, MA) Access is more than ramps and bathrooms. Communication access is an obligation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If you are a patron of the arts, have you simply stopped going to events? If you are a producer of theater, what do you know about captioning? This community conversation is for all of us on both sides of the experience.
Captioning can engage new audiences as well as re-engage old audiences. Our discussion will address institutional obligations, effective messaging, captioning software, and funding resources; as well as the BIG aspirational principles of “access” when striving for robust audience engagement.
Join us for a Community Conversation on effective accessible communication practices in theatre and live performance!
This event is sponsored by the Hearing Loss Association of America, Plymouth Chapter (HLAA), and the Mass Cultural Council’s Universal Participation (UP) Initiative. This event will be captioned in Real Time (CART). The library is physically accessible.
