  • PaddleBoat Theatre Company and the COVID-19 Prompt Action Fund

    We've been following up with some of the projects funded by our COVID-19 Prompt Action Fund to share the work they have been doing in their communities. As it’s Deaf Awareness Week we thought we would share how PaddleBoat Theatre Company is using the small grant funding to support deaf children and families, by making sign supported videos and online activities. Find out more in the video about how they have made a sign supported storytelling of their book ‘According to Arthur’ and some short videos of drama activities based on the story as well. Sign Supported English (SSE) is not the same as British Sign Language but uses signs borrowed from it that follow spoken English. The project chose to use this so that deaf children could access the same activities as their parents and siblings. You can find out more about the activities on the PaddleBoat Theatre Company website: .Find out more about the Prompt Action Fund on our website: #WeAreDevon
