Access into Action webinar series

Posted: 1 July, 2020

Arts & Disability Ireland presents Access into Action, a webinar series developed to support Irish arts and culture professionals to create accessible content and experiences for audiences with disabilities.

Access into Action will provide practical knowledge that can be put into immediate action. Each webinar will provide a brief context, explore why an aspect of access is important, discuss the benefit for audiences, share practical know-how and close with a facilitated Q&A to ensure participants get the most out of each session.

This series forms part of ADI’s Dublin Access Partnership, which has been running since August 2018 and is embedding a more holistic approach to accessible arts programming for audiences with disabilities.

To kick-start the series, we had Oli Webster, Programme Systems Manager at Stagetext, who presented Subtitling Online Content on Tuesday 14th July at 11am.

Next up, we had Roz Chalmers, a member of the resident team of describers in London’s National Theatre, The Old Vic Theatre, Chickenshed and the Park Theatre, who presented Writing Accessible Introductions on Tuesday 28th July at 11am.

Each webinar had live speech to text provided by MyClearText, and Irish Sign Language (ISL) interpretation was available on request. Requests for ISL should be made by emailing our Event Manager Síle Stewart at Should you have any other access requirements or questions, Síle will do everything she can to accommodate you.

Both webinars were recorded and will be available on our website soon.

Now we want to hear from you… What are the topics you’d like to see covered in our future webinars as part of this series? What practical knowledge will help you and your organisation put Access into Action?
