The goal of this symposium is to explore the question, “How can we use digital technology to provide access for theatre patrons, artists and community members living with disabilities who currently encounter barriers to the traditional theatre experience?”
Community members, artists, administrators, and educators (both local and from across the country) are invited to come together and share ideas, challenges, and successes about the use of digital strategies to increase inclusivity in theatre environments.

Attending the symposium is free of charge, however registration is required. To register, please click here. Registration deadline: October 11, 2019.

This symposium is made possible by the generous support from the Canada Council’s Digital Strategy Fund.
