Since becoming deaf at the age of seven, Jenny Sealey has been determined to tackle challenges her way.
That determination led her to being the co-director of the 2012 London Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony. She believes that quality children’s / young people’s theatre and TV, inclusive and diverse, is essential to entertain, educate, inform and create a world and an aesthetic, where difference is embraced as the norm.
Jenny has pioneered a new theatrical language, coining the term the ‘Aesthetics of Access’; the creative integration of sign language, audio description, diverse physicality and different voices from the beginning of the artistic process.
Watch Jenny's fascinating and engaging keynote on the CMC 2015 theme All Change.
