3:15 - 4:00 PM
Touretteshero’s Jess Thom will share how she led a change with Battersea Arts Centre to make the whole space and experience accessible to everyone, from booking tickets, arriving, right through to enjoying the shows. All performances are now relaxed unless otherwise stated.
Jess will be introduced by Tarek Iskander, BAC Artistic Director and CEO. Tarek’s previous roles include National Director for Theatre at Arts Council England and Resident Director at the National Theatre Studio. He was also one of the founders and Associate Artistic Director of the Yard Theatre in Hackney.
Jess and Tarek are two people working to make culture more inclusive. Their work breaks the mould. Our 2019 conference aims to equip organisations to embrace the coming years with resilience. Jess and Tarek will inspire us to further our inclusivity ambitions for our new and existing audiences, visitors, donors and participants.
