Workshops (Saskatoon): Access Activator Relaxed Performance Training

Persephone Theatre, in collaboration with British Council Canada, is pleased to offer a Relaxed Performance training program in Saskatoon on September 6, 7 and 8, 2018. In partnership with Tangled Art + Disability, this program is support by the Canada Council for the Arts.

What is a Relaxed Performance?

Relaxed performances were initially designed to make theatre spaces more comfortable and welcoming to audience members with autism spectrum disorders, sensory and communication disorders or learning disabilities. Other audience members who benefit from Relaxed Performances include parents with toddlers, people with Tourette’s syndrome, people who experience anxiety or people who are not comfortable with the conventions of a traditional theatre setting.


Why should your organization offer Relaxed Performances?

As well as complying with federal and provincial accessibility legislation, expanding your programming in ways that welcome disability will improve your sustainability as a cultural space while putting your organization on the map. More importantly, it is imperative that all audiences be able to experience arts and culture without barriers. Join us in making our arts and cultural sector in Canada more inclusive!

The training program will include the following 3 sessions:

  1. The Foundation: The Principles of a Relaxed Performance
    Thursday, September 6, from 10am – 4:30pm
  2. Getting the Word Out: Marketing and Audience Development
    Friday, September 7, from 10am – 2pm
  3. Opening the Doors: Front of House Staff and Box Office
    Saturday, September 8, from 10am – 2pm
