Accessing Access Workshop

Afraid of access? So was solo theatre maker, performer and producer Paul O’Donnell until he made a commitment to embed access into his performance work.

In this workshop, he will present the results of that journey, while helping independent artists discover how you too can start making access a natural and creative part of your processes.
