Where Disability Meets Advocacy & Art!

Accessible theatre practices for audiences and actors
Disability representation in all types of media
Disability culture & language
Creating accessible events
Disability-centred policies and frameworks
Cerebral Palsy, Neurodivergence & Service Dogs
Healthcare & how to navigate the system as a patient and caregiver

There's nothing I love more than to connect with other professionals working to achieve similar goals. Let's talk about it!
Relaxed Performance Audit
What are Relaxed Performances? Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome audience members who would benefit from a more relaxed and inclusive environment, including those with sensory concerns, such as Autism, learning disorders, or dementia; parents with small babies; or anyone for whom the regular theatre experience can be unwelcoming.
Production Access Coordination (PAC)
A PAC is a crew member in theatre and film with lived experience in Disability Culture and Accessibility, Education, and Production. I am ideally situated to benefit production by budgeting for accommodations, eliminating time and costs spent on commonly overlooked accessibility issues, offering specific situational expertise, acting as a safe point of communication, handling accommodation services, leading crew education, providing cultural context, maintaining access on set, approving access features
Do you have a specific space you'd like to make accessible, but are not sure how? Do you have questions about what changes are feasible?
