In 2020/2021, with theatre activity paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BOP was supported by Federation of Scottish Theatre to redirect Access Scottish Theatre resources to undertake a research project called House Lights Up!
The aim of this research was to understand what the arts sector could do to further remove barriers and improve the experience for neurodivergent audiences of relaxed performances in Scotland.
The House Lights Up! report was launched in May 2023 at an event attended by 44 representatives from the performing arts sector. The event included a presentation of findings, sharing of audience perspectives and group discussions among workers and organisations in the sector.
