OUR COMMITMENT TO

ACCESSIBILITY

It's embedded in our mission statement at spinningrock, that we want to make theatre as accessible as we can for everyone, regardless of background or circumstance.

 

Still in our infancy as a company, we are all too aware of our limitations in achieving this goal, but we're making a pledge to put accessibility at the heart of everything do. Here are just some of the ways we plan to do this:

AUDIENCES

  • Providing captions for all video content across stories, videos etc.

  • Optimising colour and contrast across our images that are posted on our social media and website

  • Making sure we only partner with venues that are accessible and safe spaces for disabled artists, staff and audiences

  • Proactively responding to specific needs of individuals using those spaces

  • Striving to make ticket prices as affordable as possible

  • Inviting audiences to be a part of the development of all projects, and encouraging their feedback and ideas surrounding accessibility

ARTISTS

  • We will deliver accessibility training and disability awareness courses to staff and artists. The courses will be run by disabled people who have a career within the arts.

  • Look to partner with disability-led organisations to train artists in audio description, captioning and BSL integration. And to incorporate these into our projects wherever possible.​​

  • Invest in the next generation of creative talent, focusing on individuals from working-class backgrounds 

LUNA THE MUSICAL

  • Working with an Access Consultant at all stages of Luna's development 

  • Premiering the musical to be first watched online; giving audiences the "opening night" feel, whilst removing potential barriers of high ticket prices, and concerns around physical accessibility in a theatre

  • This also allowed viewers to have sensory control over their viewing experiences

  • Pre-typing closed captions for the online premiere; striving for accuracy in the first instance, and then looking to make them more engaging for future showings

  • Relaxed performances at The Other Palace and Wales Millennium Centre​​

If you have any questions, feedback or ideas for future projects, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us on social media (@spinningrockprods) or by emailing us at 'contact@spinningrockprods.com'
