Find out more about Ramps on the Moon, a ground-breaking touring project which signals a change in the UK’s disability arts provision. Bringing together six major theatres, alongside champions of accessibility; Graeae, it will change the way theatre made by and for Deaf and disabled people is seen. We are putting Deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of our work; to accelerate positive change and stimulate awareness of disability issues within arts and culture.

The talk will be presented by Sharon Osbourne, Ramps on the Moon Project Administrator, signed in BSL and there will be a voice over, provided by interpreter Ali Green.
