Do you love the arts and find captions and subtitles helpful when going to the theatre, a museum or a gallery? Do subtitles help you to follow events and content online? Then, you could be the perfect ambassador for Stagetext!
We are a deaf-led charity that champions captions and subtitles for live events and online content in the arts. We do this because we believe that everyone should have access to the wonderful arts and culture available in the UK.
We’re looking for volunteers who can help support our work and be the voice of arts-loving caption and subtitle users across the UK. Our ambassador group include deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audience members from across the UK, but we know other people find this kind of access beneficial, so we welcome people who use captions and subtitles for any reason.
Our ambassadors work predominantly online and attend ambassador meetings to share their views and help shape our work. Meetings are held around three times a year and include members of Stagetext’s team and ambassadors from across the UK.
We may occasionally invite you to events run by Stagetext, either in your local area or further afield. Also, we would love you to talk about Stagetext in your local area, sharing our work with other caption users and local venues. Your voice really matters, and you can help us to share what great access means to the audiences who need it, with arts organisations and the wider population of the UK.
This voluntary role is flexible, and you can take part in as much as suits your availability, this could include sharing our work on social media, giving us a quote for a press release or talking to local groups about the work we do and the benefits of captions and subtitles.
If you are passionate about access and enjoying the arts, then you could be the perfect person to join our amazing ambassador group.
