Signals Media Arts Centre believes that everyone should have the opportunity to develop production skills and gain a better understanding of media. The centre provides facilities, information, courses, projects and events to actively encourage involvement.
It seeks to engage all sections of the community and seeks to work with people who would not normally consider media participation.
Signals programme is focused on reaching new audiences and participants with 65% of annual resources used on working with people and partner organisations new to media.
Access – summary of key access issues in the building
- Parking: Signals Media Arts Centre regretfully has no on-site parking, the nearest parking can be found on the high street for those in possession of a disability parking permit and Nunn’s Road NCP car park, a short up-hill walk to Signals Media Arts Centre.
- Entrance: The front door is just off St Runwald Street. Entry is via a door entry system (currently under review), the door is wheelchair accessible and as the door does not presently release remotely a member of the Signals staff will come to open the front door to all patrons.
- The ground floor of Signals Media Arts centre is fully wheelchair accessible. Among the facilities is a ramp into the main studio, a disabled unisex toilet and downstairs kitchen.
- All public access courses take place on the ground floor.
- Should there be specific requirements that Signals Media Arts Centre cannot meet on site, Signals has portable equipment and we are easily able to relocate equipment and staff in an outreach capacity.
- Should there be any requirements for learning or physical support within our workshops Signals Media Arts Centre are happy to meet this provision by hiring qualified practitioners.
- Signals Media Arts Centre seeks to ensure its website is accessible and uses the web to exhibit films and provide information. Signals is also available to the public via Facebook and Twitter, enabling comments and suggestions from users and potential users.
- Assistance dogs are welcome.
