Accessibility Testing Rider Spoke

This year we’re redeveloping one of our most celebrated works and we need your help to test out the new version. The work takes place on bikes and involves cycling whilst making recordings and listening to other people’s.

We’re specifically testing the accessibility of the experience for wheelchair users and those with visual or hearing impairments. Please get in touch if you would like to test the work and if you are:

  • A wheelchair (or alternative cycle) user
  • A person with a vision impairment
  • A person with a hearing impairment

What is involved?

  • An outdoor test at Blast Theory’s studios in Portslade, Wednesday 23rd September, 6-8pm
  • A follow-up test at Blast Theory’s studios in Portslade, Friday 25th September, 10am-12pm

The two tests will involve experiencing the work, followed by a feedback session with the Blast Theory team. Testing will take place outside. The feedback session will involve completing a questionnaire and answering questions in a one-to-one interview with a member of the Blast Theory team. Questionnaires will be available in large print and can also be done verbally if required.

Fee

We can offer a £150 fee for taking part in both tests. If travel expenses pose a barrier or your carer/PA needs to attend the test with you, please contact us. Please note that there are a limited number of places for testing. We aim to test with a diverse range of access needs.
