About Removing Barriers
The Removing Barriers course is an intensive 5-week course where we will work towards a way of developing and presenting work that are committed to accessibility and inclusion. We will explore how artists and curators can integrate access in their work – treating accessibility as an integral part of their creative process rather than an afterthought. The course is semi-flexible and can be built around your other commitments, allowing you to learn and participate according to your schedule. There will be two scheduled workshops to learn about accessibility and discuss the development of their own work with our tutor.
After being selected for the course, you will have exclusive access to the programme content on our e-learning platform.
You will undertake online training sessions on accessibility in relation to arts and culture. There are five modules, each released weekly. Each module is accompanied with a short assignment which gives you the opportunity to transfer the knowledge into practice and prepare them to create works that are more accessible for a diverse audience. Each module takes place over an entire week, therefore providing sufficient time to complete the tasks, participate and receive tailored feedback. On every step of the course you can share your ideas with other learners and join in the active discussions on our online forum.
In Transit will send you all the information you need one week before the course start date. All workshops will happen from 5pm – 7pm on Wednesdays, following the specified dates. Recordings to the workshops will be available for access purposes and for artists who cannot attend.
