Access 2023

Despite its enforced closure since March 2020 due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Millennium Forum has continued to work with relevant agencies to support its Access activities upon reopening.  In June 2021, the Millennium Forum was been cited as an example of best practice at the launch of the Derry City & Strabane Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) Digital Resource Pack.

The A.I.M Resource pack is an Access Inclusion Model of practice developed and designed through working partnerships and learning that has occurred in the lifetime of DCSDC’s Access and Inclusion Project. This will be strengthened by working collaboratively with Developing Healthy Communities who manage initiatives that further serve to enhance the overall product and launch of A.I.M digital Resource Pack throughout DCSDC.

The full pack is now available at the link below.



The Millennium Forum has produced a programme of accessible events for 2023. In producing this programme the Forum has worked in close collaboration with Access to Arts for All, (AAA) a charity which is supported by and based in the theatre as part of its ongoing commitment to providing an all-inclusive experience for all patrons.
