Michèle talks to David Bellwood – Head of Access at The National Theatre

Michèle and David discuss rigour around language and what it means for David to be a non-disabled person working in the area of ‘access’.

David throws down the gauntlet: can he and Michèle find a word that can usefully replace ‘access’ by the end of the episode?

They explore vulnerability and transparency as important values of his work.

Thank you to David for your time!
