What is Transmit Futures?

Transmit Futures is weekly performing arts workshops from 12 April to 7 June. They will run on Fridays, 1 – 4 pm at Temperance Hall. The workshops are an artistic development that will lead to a public performance on 14 June 2024. Multi-award-winning performer, Andi Snelling will facilitate all workshops.

The workshop will focus on the themes of:

  • Climate Change and its impact on Deaf and Disable people.
  • What we can do to make the future better and more equitable place.

Transmit Futures is open to emerging Deaf and Disabled artists. There are 8 spots available.

One of the aims of the workshop is to form an ensemble that can present the project in the future, including Alter State 2024.
