With the help of experts we strive to ensure our shows are accessible to people with an impairment. ‘Hospitality to all’ is our basic principle. In 2017, a number of shows featured sign language, a deaf loop system and/or audio description to improve accessibility.
Boulevard is a festival that is open to all. Still, there are some groups that could use a little push. That is why every year Boulevard has made an effort to increase accessibility for specific groups. And the efforts have not been one-off, as we have continued the services and facilities developed into subsequent editions of the festival.
In 2015 we introduced ‘Voor Nop’ (For Free), for those on modest budgets. In 2016 we promoted accessibility for visitors with a physical and/or mental impairment. In 2017 we will be building on the expertise and insights gained in 2015 and 2016. Measures include: special attention to people on lower incomes in our marketing efforts, increased promotion of the For Free programme, using sign language interpreters and companions, a deaf loop system, audio description, accessible rest rooms, and the Sign Language Café on Saturday August 12.
We make every effort to clearly indicate which shows we think are accessible to people with an impairment. But of course if you have a hearing or seeing impairment you are welcome to attend any show you like. Our advice is complimentary. Are you looking for personal assistance?
