"Deaf (and disabled) people should have the same equal rights as hearing people." - EJ Raymond
Turtléar: supporting the Deaf community to have greater access to the arts.
Our aim is to support and encourage Deaf people to participate further in theatre, film, acting, writing, presenting and more.
Our focus is to develop the skills of Deaf people in the arts and to create opportunities for them to develop their full potential as artists.
We also want to improve the experience of the Deaf community as audience members, and we create accessible marketing materials in BSL. We also support BSL interpreters who are working in the arts, with mentoring and training.
Small steps at the moment, but watch this space for more exciting developments!
