Welcome to the Deaf Artists & Theatres Toolkit (DATT)! The DATT serves as a resource and guide to increase innovative collaborations between professional theatre companies and Deaf artists as well as to increase engagement with Deaf audiences. We invite you to explore the DATT and join us in extending the conversation on theatre arts access, empowerment and engagement.

Read me!

While it is tempting to dive right into the practical aspects of engaging Deaf performing artists and audiences in production we urge you to first read the module, “Cultural Context” to better understand, “what is Deaf culture?”. This may expand your thinking and lays the foundation for everything. We promise it will stand you in good stead!

By using the Deaf Artists and Theatres Toolkit (DATT), I commit to personal reflection, openness, exploration and collaboration.
