The Creative Case for Relaxed Performance

Get Tickets

Relaxed Performance (RP) as a cultural practice helps to make theatre spaces more comfortable and welcoming to audience members with autism spectrum disorders, sensory and communication disorders or learning disabilities. This workshop will explore how cultural producers, artists and arts organizations can more widely and independently integrate RP principles within their work and creative process. This workshop will be led by Access Activators, a Relaxed Performance pilot consulting project.

Registration details: Approximately 10 spaces will be made available 30 minutes prior to the start of the workshop on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority will be given to those arriving by accessible transit (i.e. Wheel Trans) or who wish to access ASL interpretation.

Participate online:We will be broadcasting this workshop via Facebook Live and live tweeting from @summerworks and @generatorTO using the hashtag #SLIPrelaxed.
