ACCESSIBILITY
PROJECT

Project Coordinator - April Hubbard
 

Creating theatre for everyone.

The Accessibility Project has a two-fold goal to both recognize the barriers faced by underrepresented artists in accessing the performing arts in Nova Scotia, and to offer recommendations on how we can clear these roadblocks and create a more welcoming arts sector for everyone.

 

​Project Coordinator April Hubbard led six Community Consultants with lived experience to represent underserved communities in the performing arts. They conducted interviews, held feedback sessions, and administered surveys before making recommendations on what organizations could do moving forward to reduce barriers to accessing and working in performing arts, no matter what their capacity. These recommendations are now in the form of a comprehensive final report, available free of charge. We're currently working towards a more accessible platform that will empower other arts organizations to include these measures in their own work.
