HER Productions

Access Consultant

I am the access consultant for the award winning neurodivergent writer and performer, Beth Westbrook. A finalist for Hope
Mill Theatre's ‘Through the Mill’ Prize 2021, Sunny Girl is the anti rain man, and aims to show a side of autism that is very
rarely seen on stage and screen. I am working alongside the lead artist, producer, director and the venue to embed access for the creative team and our audiences.

 

Factory International

Access Consultant

I have been rehired to continue as an access consultant on Sweet Dreams. "A new immersive storytelling experience from award-winning art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast – a visual feast for the senses". Premiering at Aviva Studios in July 2024.
 

Elle Chante

Access Consultant

I am the access consultant for Elle Chante, an Unlimited UK Partner Award 2023 commissioned artist with The Glasshouse International Centre for Music. I am working alongside the lead artist, producer and the Glasshouse teams to embed access for the creatives and audiences of Accessible Dreamscapes, an immersive performance, which combines ethereal vocals and dance informed by chronic pain.

Blaze Arts

Workshop Facilitator

I facilitated a session on Access Consultancy with a group of young D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent young people, in Preston.

 

Factory International

Access Consultant


I was rehired to create and deliver a Front of House Access Training Handbook and suite of training videos for over 200 front facing staff members at Aviva Studios, using data I gathered from staff consultation around visitor access and experience. 

 

Factory International

Access Manager

I was selected to cover the absence of one of Factory International’s Access Managers for three months to maintain progress and momentum across all the access workstreams at Aviva Studios. My focus was to develop the venue framework for the Attitude Is Everything Charter and support producers to integrate access into large scale events, including, The Welcome, A Night with Johnny Marr, Children of Zeus and Sweet Dreams.
