We recently celebrated seven incredible years of the award-winning Ramps on the Moon initiative by holding regional symposiums with each of our founding partners. This was a chance for a wide range of industry guests to share their learnings of their Ramps journey, offering workshops and challenging Q&A sessions as well as acknowledging and celebrating the legacy of Ramps on the Moon.

Ramps on the Moon was formed in 2015, funded by Arts Council England, and made up of 6 mid-scale theatres, led by The New Wolsey. The prime directive of the consortium is to enrich the stories we tell and the way we tell them by elevating the presence of deaf and disabled people into the heart of our work; on stage, off stage, for audiences and for every visitor to our theatres.

The following symposiums took place:

Sheffield Theatres

15 September 2022
