An image of two people sat in front of a large piece of paper. One is a live-illustrating a talk by Jess Thom in blue and yellow colours. The headline is the word 'language barriers' written in white within a blue speech bubble.
Contributions to library corner included live-scribed posters from the Touretteshero team.

Resources from our friends

Earlier this year, Unlimited was asked to put together a pop-up library of resources for IETM, an international gathering of theatre professionals, which this time round took place in Hull and featured ‘Access and Inclusion’ as its theme. As well as bringing along our own case studies and resources, we issued a call-out to other IETM members for literature around this topic, and the response was great!

Here then is an e-version of what was designated the Unlimited ‘Library Corner’. Containing blogs, reports and online publications, have a browse and stay tuned – we’ll be keeping our eye out for great examples, and adding them in where relevant:
