Media Release – Perth Festival congratulates The Captioning Studio – 19 Aug 2011
Perth International Arts Festival warmly congratulates our caption provider The Captioning Studio on their big win at The Deafness Forum 2011 National Captioning Awards in Sydney last night.
The Captioning Studio took out the award for Best Event Captioning in Australia for its GoTheatrical! Theatre Captioning service.
Perth International Arts Festival strives to make its program accessible to all patrons, by providing captioning to as many events as possible. This is driven by the objectives outlined in the University of Western Australia’s Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.
Perth Festival General Manager Julian Donaldson said: “We thank the Captioning Studio for its role in our ongoing commitment to making the Festival accessible, inclusive and welcoming to all.”
The Captioning Studio provided captioning for seven Festival theatre productions in the 2011 Perth International Arts Festival.
