BSL Interpretation for Performance

with Jacqui Beckford

  • Sat 7 Dec – Sun 8 Dec, 10:00am

Running time: 7/14 hours

Venue: Downstairs Studio

The diversity of professional British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters has increased over the years, yet we are still finding a lack of interpreters working in the performance sector. As a leading BSL theatre and performance interpreter and often the ‘go-to BAME interpreter’Jacqui Beckford asks what is stopping Black and minority ethnic interpreters from dipping their toes into the performance world?

Jacqui will share her career knowledge and experiences in this two-day accredited workshop. You’ll gain expert knowledge and skills enabling BSL interpreters to work in the performance and theatre sector. 

Hours attended will be CPD accredited by NRCPD. Limited spaces available and early booking is advisable. Priority will be given to peers from a BAME/POC background.


Please register via email Jacqui.beckford@gmail.com no later than 14 November 2019. £80 per day.
