Celebrate over 20 years of theatre captioning with Stagetext’s touring exhibition
Thanks to support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we have created the world’s first archive and exhibition on open captioning.
“Captions Speak Louder” guides you through the history of captioning using the stories and memories of caption users, our founders, and the staff and supporters who have worked with us over the last two decades.
This is an ever-evolving project that will exist online and as a touring exhibition, which will continue to add pieces of history and new stories as the art of captioning continues to develop.
We would love to give all venues who have continued to show their support for captioning and deaf access the opportunity the take on the exhibition and bring the history of captioning to their audiences.
The exhibition itself is very versatile and can be displayed using a range of configurations, with collapsible panels and multiple video screens that can be installed to fit any space. We’ve put together the full details so you can see a little more about the exhibition and see how it can be set up in your venue.
Booking the Exhibition
The exhibition will be on tour for the rest of the year and we recommend booking early for your chance to bring it to you venue.
We advise that the exhibition should be on show for at least a month, to ensure all venues get an opportunity to display it, as well as giving your audiences a chance to visit. We can also accommodate full seasons if you’d like to display the exhibition for longer.
