Would you love to make your workshops more accessible, but feel nervous about where to start? Do you feel excited by the potentially creative possibilities that lie in foregrounding access?

Join Mandy Redvers-Rowe, an experienced Disability Access Consultant, specifically with Arts Organisations, who is also an experienced writer herself (predominantly working in theatre, television and radio) for this professional development session. You will gain practical knowledge as well as building confidence to ensure your creative writing workshops are as inclusive as possible for D/deaf and disabled people.

Mandy will:

• Explore simple things that you can do to make your workshops more inclusive • Look at how to work with professional access providers such as BSL Interpreters or Access Support Workers

• Examine how in-person and online workshops differ in terms of access considerations

• Look at how to problem solve creatively to find exciting ways to make your workshops more inclusive

• Discover how having more than one way to engage with your ideas and materials can enrich the experience of all participants

This recording will be available to watch at your convenience. Please see the ‘Access’ tab for information on how to find it.

"These zoom opportunities are really helping to open my world and keep me inspired to write."

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."
— Masterclass participant
"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
