Access Coventry is a series of online training sessions targeted at professional artists and the small-scale independent arts sector based in Coventry and Warwickshire. 

These training sessions are aimed at equipping artists with knowledge and practical strategies to provide for different audiences with different access needs. 

This third session in our series focuses on audiences with learning difficulties. 
 
Keynote speakers include:  
 
Ben Pettitt-Wade – Hijinx Theatre

Participants from Open Theatre

Our speakers will be sharing their knowledge and experiences of common barriers audiences with learning difficulties may encounter and how they are working towards overcoming these. At the end of the session, you will gain an understanding of good practice and identify some simple steps to take to make your events more accessible.

Each training session is designed to help you up-skill and increase your understanding of the experiences or access needs of audiences. To get the most out of this course we encourage you to attend as many of the events as you can.

Access Coventry is the first step of many on our citywide journey of creating a manifesto aimed at making Coventry a more accessible place to experience culture.
