The Network of Theatres with Accessible Programming intends to present a regular offer of performances with audiodescription and with interpretation in Portuguese Sign Language. In this way, it will improve the conditions of access for people with visual impairments and for Deaf public, as well as for their families and friends.
Another objective of the network is to create better access conditions in the cultural programming further from the two main urban centres, Lisbon and Porto.
The network will also allow for better collaboration and sharing of resources among its members, who are:
- A Oficina (Guimarães)
- Cine-teatro Louletano (Loulé)
- Teatro do Noroeste – Centro Dramático de Viana (Viana do Castelo)
- Teatro Municipal Baltazar Dias (Funchal)
- Teatro Municipal da Guarda
This is a pilot project that we all hope to see grow in the coming years.
The Network of Theatres with Accessible Programming is coordinated by Acesso Cultura and has the support of BPI e da Fundação “la Caixa”.
