Understanding Disabled People as Audiences
Shape Arts have produced a new report, Understanding Disabled People as Audiences, which looks at the barriers to participating in the arts for this section of potential audiences. A major finding is that problems with public transport are a deterrent.
There are around 11 million people with a life-limiting disability or illness in the UK. Shape offers a solution to some difficulties such as offering an access service to help people travel to arts venues, as well as training and access consultancy for the venues themselves.
