Atypical Interludes – Episode 02
This new project, in partnership with University of Atypical, is funded by Arts Council of Northern Ireland through their Organisations Emergency Programme. It is hosted by Paula Clarke and Jane O’Brien, and available in both BSL and ISL.
Our weekly broadcasts are designed to update Deaf people on what is happening in the Cultural sector in Northern Ireland. With everything now online, Deaf people are losing access to the arts – as audiences, participants, and interpreters. This programme aims to address that.
The lack of adequate information, communication and, perhaps most importantly, recognition (amidst so many communities facing unprecedented need), is having profound impacts on the mental health of D/deaf people.
We hope that Atypical Interludes will be the start of a move towards accessible online events, performances and broadcasts from all cultural organisations.
You can watch the broadcasts on our Facebook page and our Vimeo channel.
