Awareness Training for Practitioners

VIAT workshops Steven Reed being stick exercise

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.
