Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. How can artists, companies, producers and venues create better access for audiences? Join Unlimited, the commissioning programme for disability-led artworks, to demystify how to creatively embed access and use it to enhance artistic dialogue and content without compromising on aesthetics. Nickie Wildin-Miles, currently Change Maker at Royal Exchange Manchester, chairs a discussion with experts from the arts. The session covers artistic slants on captioning, BSL interpretation, audio description and relaxed events.
