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 audiences with different access needs. 

This fourth session in our series focuses on D/deaf / Deaf / deaf and hard of hearing audiences. 
 
Keynote speakers include:  
 
Rinkoo Barpaga - Independent Artist and Comedian

Philippa Cross - Talking Birds

Our speakers will be sharing their experiences of the political and often complex language around the terms D/deaf / Deaf / deaf / hard of hearing. At the end of the session, you will gain an understanding of good practice and identify some practical solutions to making work 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.
