The On Demand vs On Request Access Panel delved into the design and implementation of inclusive programmes, accommodations, or services available on an ‘on demand’ or an ‘on request’ basis.


The Marketing and Audience Development Panel reviewed the current and future trends and techniques used to connect with, include, cultivate and welcome new and existing audiences.


The Aesthetically Accessible Arts and Cultural Experiences Panel explored the meaningful and effective ways of interweaving accessibility into productions, festivals and exhibitions by practitioners from across the globe.


The People with Disabilities Leading Change Panel reflected on leadership roles and opportunities for people with disabilities and posed a critical closing question ‘where do we go from here?’

Captioning (OC) is similar to television subtitling and gives deaf and hard of hearing people access to live performances.

Irish Sign Language (ISL) is the sign language used in the republic of Ireland. The language makes use of space and involves movement of hands, body, face and head. A sign language interpreter interprets what a person says or signs simultaneously, or immediately afterwards.
