Pathways and Solidarities: Panel Discussion
Fri 15 October 2021
Pathways and Solidarities
How can neurodivergent performers, artists and organisations practise solidarity across neurodivergent identities and act collectively for change?
Morna McGeoch and Jonathan Carlton from Birds of Paradise Theatre Company (Glasgow), Emma McCaffrey from Lung Ha/ Reluctant Penguin Productions (Edinburgh), Liselle Terret and Emma Selwyn from Not Your Circus Dogs (London) and Akshayee Shetty from Sense Kaleidoscopes (Bangalore) will share their experiences of arts training, path-making and forging alternatives in a neurotypical and ableist world. Presentations will be followed by a discussion between the panellists and members of the audience. Chaired by Rachel Clive.
NEUROSTAGES is a Relaxed Festival. This means that it takes the approach of Relaxed Performance across all festival activity, both in-person and online.
Relaxed Performances were created to make watching performance more accessible by ‘relaxing’ the usual rules of theatre etiquette – they allow for noise and movement from the audience, as well as tailoring light and sound for those with sensory sensitivities.
All live events will be wheelchair accessible.
All online events will be captioned.
BSL for live and online events to be confirmed.
There will be an option of high sensory or low sensory dedicated chillout spaces at CCA.
An easy to read festival guide, audio introduction, visual guide and printable programme for the CCA will also be made available.
