We’re a small, passionate and hard-working team united by our love of the arts, and our drive to make cultural events of all kinds accessible to deaf audiences.
We’re here to support arts organisations and venues of all sizes make their work available to the 12 million deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people in the UK.
Whether this is your first time exploring captions, live subtitles and digital subtitles, or if you’re a venue looking to improve your current provision and develop audiences, we look forward to hearing from you.
“Before joining Stagetext I spent years working for Arts Council England and other National Lottery funders, which helped me to understand and develop our place as a charity within the arts.
“It’s my job to ensure our different departments work together to bring captions and subtitles to the most exciting events and venues across the country.
“I’ve spent a lot of time working at live events, playing music, and volunteering for charities like Attitude Is Everything. Now I’m thrilled to be here with Stagetext, working to ensure that no one is excluded from the arts.”
“My route to Stagetext is a bit of a strange one. I’ve worked for the NHS and within the private sector, but have always been passionate about theatre, music and the arts, and have volunteered for fringe theatres just to be part of it.
“Working for Stagetext lets me be creative, and I can work with theatres and museums all across the country. But most importantly, it gives my work a larger purpose.”
“I come to Stagetext from a museums and heritage background, having studied Archaeology and Ancient History. I’ve worked in the collections departments of various museums, helping to digitalise their collections.
“I’ve always been an advocate for increased access everywhere I’ve worked. I’m in the process of learning British Sign Language, having attained Level One.
“Through Stagetext, I’m excited to be able to give many more people access to museum/gallery events, tours and talks.”
“After graduating from Durham University with a BSc in Psychology, I worked in marketing before moving to Stagetext.
“I’ve always had a passion for theatre and the arts and was involved with productions both in and out of school. Since moving back to London, I’ve taken part in many shows and workshops with the Chickenshed Theatre.
“As a deaf person, Stagetext enabled me to enjoy regular theatre trips for years. Now, I’m so excited to be helping make the arts accessible to more people like me.”
“I studied Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Leeds. I’ve always had a passion for theatre, working on in-house projects for the Courtyard Theatre, and with Interactive Theatre International on their show Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience.
“I’m 50% deaf, so working with Stagetext towards full access for deaf audiences is a great fit for me.”
