Some websites that we link to might not be accessible, e.g. they might contain undescribed photos and inaccessible menus. We are not able to make external websites accessible, but please get in touch if we can help you with some specific information.
This guidance should give you all the information you need to add your company’s information but if you do have any problems then please write to us at email@example.com
There is a maximum word limit for the Artist Policy (300 words) and Production descriptions (50 words)
Please avoid using exaggeration in the Artistic Policy section – endorsements should be provided in quotes from press reviews
Refer to your work in the third person
Please note that we reserve the right to edit copy for length and style
Use press quotes about your company’s work rather than about specific productions
We will be selective in the press quotes that we use
Please enter no more than three Current Productions/Exhibitions/Collections of work/Performances – they should all be potentially available for international touring. For non-performance artforms, think of an exhibition or collection of works you could present as one coherent offer for a venue or programmer.
In the Production Description please include essential information e.g. site specific / scale of work and audience
Please provide details of wraparound activities you can deliver, for example: workshops, post-performance discussions, residencies, masterclasses, and who the intended audience would be.
Images and videos
Each entry for an Artist or Company on the website must be illustrated with a production shot from a recent show, preferably one that is currently available for international touring
It is best to supply more than one image so that we have a selection to choose from
The caption (e.g. production title) and photographer’s credit must be provided for each image you use
Alt text for each image must also be provided. This is essential for access reasons. Alt text simply describes what the image is and/or its function, in one short sentence e.g. ‘Male wheelchair user dancing on stage’.
A long description of each image should ideally also be provided. Long description gives a more detailed description and extra contextual information e.g. Production photograph of Graeae’s Reasons to be Cheerful. It shows a group of actors dressed in 1980s punk-style clothing, jumping in the air on a busy set with projections and traffic cones.’
Image file size – please no larger than 2MB.
Image dimensions – the images should have a minimum width of 2000 pixels. If they are smaller then we will not be able to use them. Landscape only.
File formats: JPEG, TIF or PNG. Please avoid low quality JPEG compression as the image will not replicate well on the web page
You can add promotional films to your profile. They will need to be embedded from either YouTube or Vimeo. This can be done in the Images & Videos section – please bear in mind that we reserve to right to choose which videos we publish. To help meet the accessibility standards of the website, we ask that videos include captions (YouTube offers automated captions, which can easily be edited to make them 100% accurate). We also strongly recommend that you provide an enhanced transcript for visually impaired users. You can see an example of this here: https://www.disabilityartsinternational.org/resources/europe-beyond-access-dance-politics-disability-the-body/
You MUST own the copyright to the images and videos submitted or have express permission from the copyright holder to use them.
