Help spread the word – be a Stagetext Ambassador

Did your first captioned theatre performance change your life? Perhaps live subtitles completely transformed a trip to your favourite museum? Are you always searching for the next captioned performance? If you love what we do and want to help share the experience with others, perhaps you could help us spread the word.

Many people discover Stagetext by accident. We don’t want the great work we do to be a secret: we want to shout it from the rooftops. If you’re comfortable chatting about the huge positive impact that accessible performances and events can have, you’re in the right place.

We’re always looking for passionate Stagetext Ambassadors who can reach new audiences who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing at Rotary Clubs, Women’s Institutes, Lipreading Classes and other local organisations. Together, we can welcome more people into the wonderful world of accessible arts and culture.

You’ll receive full training and all the presentation materials you need to talk confidently about Stagetext, but we also want you to talk openly about your own personal experiences.

People from all across the UK are welcome to apply, although we are particularly keen to find Ambassadors in the North of England to help us expand outside of London. We’re a charity and the positions are voluntary, but we’ll cover your travel expenses.

If you’d like to get involved or attend a training session, please contact Deepa on [email protected].

Request a talk

If you’re part of a group who’d like to find out more about accessible culture, one of our Ambassadors can come and give a talk about Stagetext. Contact us for more information.

“It would be difficult for me to describe the feeling, except to say that it gives me such pleasure to be a part of what‘s happening, to laugh at the same time as everyone else, to react at the same time as everyone else, and to leave my puzzled face and expressions at home because I can now follow everything that’s happening on stage.”
