We are aware that some of our website is not yet fully accessible. We endeavour to fix this by adding alt tags to all of our website images, starting with our most visited pages first and then working backwards by date of upload. This will take some time due to the amount of images on our website but we aim to work on this weekly until it is complete.

We work with our guest practitioners and participants artists to make our website text easy to understand, however, if you need information from this website in a different format such as an easy read PDF, or if you think there is more we should be doing or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, please email us at hello(at) with ‘Accessibility’ in the subject line and we will do our best to support you.
