what is hynt?
Hynt is a new national access scheme that works with theatres and arts centres in Wales to make sure there is a consistent offer available for visitors with an impairment or specific access requirement, and their Carers or Personal Assistants. This site will tell you all you need to know about Hynt: who it’s for; what it provides; and how to become a member.
If you need support or assistance to attend a performance at a theatre or arts centre then you may be eligible to join hynt.
Each year we hold a symposium for our venue staff and other professionals working in the sector. Details of the 2019 symposium are coming very soon. Here's what we did last year:
Breaking Out of the Box 4: Wales - A Diverse Arts Scene? Friday 16th February 2018, Theatr Clwyd
This access symposium was hosted in partnership between Taking Flight Theatre Company, hynt and Theatr Clwyd. The event brought together theatres, arts centres, performers, producers, companies and other creative professionals working across the performing arts to discuss how the arts scene in Wales could become more accessible and diverse.
The symposium featured a number of key note speakers including Jamie Beddard (Diverse City), Michele Taylor (Director for Change at Ramps on the Moon) and Dr Emily Garside who gave a presentation and put forward a provocation. Following each speaker there was an open space where further questions were debated in smaller break out groups. There were also sessions on accessible marketing materials (tactile model boxes and audio / BSL flyers) and Running an Accessible Rehearsal Room.
