Direct Access helps organisations develop programming and curation for accessible events.
A full-time team is based at Expo 2020 Dubai developing training for staff and volunteers, Key Performance Indicators and advising on the curation of the whole event.
Other events we have consulted on range from simple school fairs, large scale exhibitions, outdoor events and even black tie parties. We recently worked with the British Embassy in Abu Dhabi to ensure accessibility for the Queen’s birthday party.
Outdoor festivals can have numerous obstacles to overcome to provide access for disabled people such as the provision of temporary facilities, toilets, rough terrain, required acoustics, weather and untrained staff members. Some events will also require potential sign language interpreters. We understand these challenges and strive to make events accessible for all with the available budgets.
