INTRODUCTION TO DIRECTING, WRITING, AND PRODUCING FOR DEAF AND DISABLED PEOPLE

Sheffield Theatre’s are so excited to announce a new project in association with Ramps On The Moon and Leeds Playhouse. They will be co-hosting three introductory courses for deaf and disabled people who are interested in pursuing careers in directing, producing and writing.

These courses are aimed at people right at the beginning of their careers, and no previous experience is necessary. As with all their Artist Development work, the courses will be free to attend, and there is lots of practical and financial support available.

Please note, while you are welcome to attend the courses in person (travel bursaries are available), you may also attend via Zoom.
