Amy Amantea (she/her) identifies as a white settler on the stolen lands of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-waututh first peoples. Living with blindness and dyslexia, Amy’s ultimate goal has been to increase representation of disability within the Canadian theatre landscape. Amy is an artist and Accessibility Consultant and has spent the last 15 years working with theatre companies and individual artists on increasing access in the arts for patrons, artists and employees. The approach has been to utilize service providers, explore creative access, review the systems in place that raise barriers in all facets of the arts and seek ways of reducing these barriers to create more accessible and inclusive spaces.
