Access & Equity
All children have the right to access art and creativity. Polyglot Theatre is committed to ensuring we reach the broadest audiences with safety and care.
At Polyglot, access means awareness of the different sorts of barriers that children and families might experience in engaging with the arts. These include geographical isolation, lack of transport, physically inaccessible spaces, unfamiliarity and trepidation, logistical difficulty, economic difficulty, unawareness of opportunity, poor internet access and lack of computer time. Access offers nuanced engagement and equality of opportunity.
We consider physical access to our works, communication styles and non-verbal engagement, how we arrange the space for multiple experiences, audio description, Auslan interpretation, different time and pace, new approaches to marketing, audience development and universal design.
Polyglot’s work is presented in a wide range of places and venues. We include detailed access information for our public events on our What’s On listings.
