The course is aimed at actors, theater directors, theater managers, stage managers, cultural operators and managers, and in general all those who intend to deepen their knowledge of how to make theatrical performances inclusive for the hearing impaired audience.

Participants will also have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with colleagues from all over Europe, in particular Italy, Greece, Portugal, United Kingdom, Serbia and Spain.
