Equal Voices Arts has received a grant through the Ministry for Culture and Heritage Innovation Fund for a two-year pilot programme that will provide accessible workshops and training opportunities specially designed for D/deaf artists and those in the Deaf community who are interested in performance and making original performance works. 

We want to train more D/deaf artists, and provide more opportunities for Deaf stories to be shared with both D/deaf and hearing audiences. We are designing a programme of workshops led by professional international Deaf artists and allies who have a depth of experience working alongside and in collaboration with Deaf artists. All workshops will be culturally and linguistically tailored for the Deaf community, and will focus more on visual and physical storytelling, and creative explorations of NZSL. 

Join our mailing list here to stay up to date with all training and workshop opportunities.

This page will be updated throughout the year and into 2024.. with information on how to book!
