Ever wondered what a universally accessible arts centre would look like? So do we. And that’s why we’re going to design and build one.
We are launching Reimagined Futures at the London Festival of Architecture 2021. Join us as we begin to design a future where the needs of historically excluded people are centred.
This event is all about you...
We want to listen to your experiences and hear your ideas. Tell us what you need, so we can build a dream performing arts venue that centres care and is open to everyone. With the help of a panel of experts and thought leaders from the worlds of architecture, dance and theatre we will share the inspiration behind 'Reimagined Futures' and explore the current legislative frameworks which guide and shape the design of performing arts buildings. We'll then work with our online audience to identify and discuss the access needs that are often overlooked, beginning a process of consultation with historically excluded artists and audiences across the UK.
Although the majority of performing arts venues are compliant with current legislation around accessibility, there is much more work needed if our cultural spaces are to be truly open to all. Our aim is to create a benchmark that will inform and inspire new architectural, institutional and cultural approaches to the design or refurbishment of public arts buildings, looking towards a future accessible to everybody.
'Reimagined Futures' is a collaboration between studio three sixty and Dan Daw Creative Projects (DDCP) in association with Adjaye Associates and the Association of British Theatre Technicians.
Our panel will include Dan Daw, Joao Barroso & Doron von Beider from Adjaye Associates, Robin Townley from the Association of British Theatre Technicians (ABTT) and Kate Marsh who is a contemporary dancer and thought leader.
