Puppet Animation Scotland has a strong commitment to accessibility, and we strive to constantly improve access for all audiences. As the work presented during MANIPULATE is primarily visual, we are particularly committed to improving experiences of the festival for D/deaf audiences. In 2022 we will have our most accessible live festival to date, with lots of BSL-interpreted performances, several other non-verbal performances and all our films subtitled with closed captions.

All our events are listed under What’s On and within each event page, you will find access notes to the left of your screen.
