Access Open Day

Creative Routes: Spotlight on the performing arts for 11–25-year-olds 


BSL interpretation provided by Sue Maclaine and Pettra St Hilaire

Join us for a celebration of creativity with a spotlight on disabled and neurodivergent artists and their work.

This year’s Access Open Day has a special focus on 11–25-year-olds who are starting out in their creative careers. Whether you want to be on stage, or more interested in what goes on behind the scenes, you’ll be able to find out more about the creative industries and how Brighton Dome runs.

Everyone is welcome at Access Open Day but please note that under 14's must be accompanied by an adult.

Although this programme has been created with 11-25 year-olds in mind, we recognise that people who may have experienced barriers to working in the arts might begin their careers at any age. If this sounds like you, please feel free to come along.
