Other ideas and efforts
At True Colors Festival, we aim to create a festival that is easy for anyone to participate in, and we try to create a comfortable "place" for people with diverse backgrounds and individuality at each event.
Accessibility to enter the venue
Created a route for visually impaired people and those who want a stepless route. Staff with knowledge provided escorts to seats and rental of viewing support equipment. We prepared a braille guide and writing board at the reception desk for people with hearing disabilities and those with vocal disabilities. We prepared a tactile map for tactile space recognition.
Accessibility in the venue
We have prepared a place for wheelchair users to view safely. We have prepared a space for viewing on a monitor for those who find it difficult to watch in the seat for a long time. We prepared aisle seats and seats near the doorway for those who wish to enter and leave during the performance. We have prepared a seat with easy-to-read subtitles for people who are hearing impairment or have low vision.
Accessibility for viewing
We prepared a sign language interpreter and a monitor for displaying subtitles. We lent out devices such as body sonic, audio hearing aids, audio guides and subtitle tablets to meet a variety of needs.
