Practitioners (VI TAP)

Visual Impairment Awareness Training for Practitioners (VI TAP)

As part of Pathways, Extant has created a half day training session to support a wide range of theatre practitioners with the understanding, skills and confidence to plan and deliver workshops, classes and rehearsal room activity to assist the inclusion of visually impaired participants.

VI-TAP  has been delivered  for:

The Actors Centre, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and the Young Vic theatre.  Participants have included freelance theatre directors, lecturers and practitioners from ALRA, Drama Studio, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, RADA and Improbable.

Feedback from participants

“The conversations I feel I am able to have are more nuanced and deeper than before.” 

“I found all the content invaluable and the relaxed style freeing.”

“Thank you, this was so brilliant. I have a new confidence and it has made me excited for future projects.”
