Wellington Access Radio
Join Thomas Bryan as he explores the diversity of disability issues.
For February's show, Thomas talks with Emma Deakin.
Emma is a Producer and theatre maker/performer.
Currently she is the Accessibility, Community and Education Manager at the New Zealand Festival of the Arts for the 2020 programme. Supporting others to access the arts is important to Emma. She believes the arts are for everyone, and providing good access with equity is vital so that each person can enjoy the benefits and value that arts experiences bring to our lives.
An acting graduate of Toi Whakaari NZ Drama School, she spent ten years in London where she founded a ran her own theatre company for eight years. Back in NZ now for the last five years, she has produced for 2016 New Zealand Festival of the Arts, Documentary Edge Festival, Massive Theatre Company and Auckland Live, as well as continuing to develop her own work.
No Labels is a programme about your community with a focus on accessibility for all.
The show looks at services which might assist you, and highlights topics and challenges that might pose barriers for older people, or those living with or experiencing disability.
In each programme we interview someone from the community whose role, paid or voluntary, provides topical and current information relating to our community.
Each show has a disability/accessibility focus and the issues this might pose for our community.
Guests share about their role in the community, a little about themselves and their favourite music.
Tune in every week, Tuesdays, at 1pm.
