The HUB

Deafinitely Theatre's HUB is the go-to for accessible theatre training

The Hub is a new theatre training course for emerging deaf, hard of hearing and hearing artists to gain structured, accessible, professional theatre training, with the aim of equipping participants for mainstream arts employment.

Deafinitely Theatre have partnered with City lit, RADA (Royal Acadamy of Dramatic Art) and the Royal Court Theatre

Who is the Hub for?

The Hub is for anyone who wants to learn or extend their knowledge in a chosen area of theatre. The Hub is aimed at Deaf, Hard of Hearing and hearing artists who have at least a minimum understanding of British Sign. Participants should be aged 21+. Whatever your level of experience, you'll find something for you. 

Although we do welcome applications from everyone, places will be weighted towards deaf applicants as one of the only theatre companies and courses in London able to provide the access support needed.

There are 4 branches of the Hub

Welcome to The Hub

For the last few years, it has been amazing to see more and more mainstream theatre companies hire deaf actors, yet while it’s an exciting time for deaf actors, we do need deaf actors and theatre makers to have accessible opportunities to theatre training.

The Hub is specifically aimed at deaf adults who have no other opportunities to train in theatre practices and learn their craft. There is proof that there is currently high demand in the industry for deaf artists and theatre makers and it is essential they have the same access to training so they are ready to start out in their chosen theatre careers.

I am delighted that we have wonderful partners on board supporting us with this project. Thank you to Arts Council, England, for their generous funding and to our partners - City Lit (City Literary Institute), RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) and the Royal Court Theatre - who are helping us to curate and design an incredible activity full of exciting opportunities for the participants.
