Accessibility is our aesthetic.
Accessible aesthetic: through d/Deaf storytelling: highlighting d/Deaf lived experience, ASL sign/poetry, visual vernacular, combining d/Deaf and hearing creation methods and practices
Accessible design: through dynamic captions, vibrotactile devices, and a bass shaker built into our stage floors, which allows for all performers to keep time and feel the BPM of their songs.
Accessible expertise: Several of of our group members work in sign language interpreting, video captioning, ASL consulting, Deaf interpreting and in telecommunications for Canadian Administrator of Video Relay Service (CAV-VRS), a service which enables Deaf, Hard of Hearing or speech-impaired Canadians who use ASL and LSQ to make phone calls with Internet-based videoconferencing technology.
If you are an artist, producer or presenter, Speaking Vibrations is happy to answer any questions you might have about how to make your production more accessible.
