Hynt

Hynt is a new national access scheme that works with theatres and arts centres in Wales to make sure there is a consistent offer available for visitors with an impairment or specific access requirement, and their Carers or Personal Assistants.

If you need support or assistance to attend a performance at a theatre or arts centre then you may be eligible to join hynt.

Background

In March 2014 Arts Council Wales appointed Creu Cymru, in partnership with Diverse Cymru to deliver a new access initiative across the theatre and arts centre sector in Wales.

After a period of research undertaken in 2013 into the viability of such a project, this initiative is Arts Council of Wales’ response to the recommendations that were made.

It has been advertised as a national access scheme, but more than this Hynt is an innovative, peer led scheme grounded in understanding and knowledge about the needs of audiences with disability or impairment.

Hynt’s primary aim is to remove the barriers that hold those audiences back from enjoying everything that arts and culture can offer; opening up cultural spaces giving people the chance to have meaningful, memorable and inspiring experiences.
