About Dundee 

Getting to Dundee 

Getting about Dundee 

We also recommend Ewan’s Guide. is the disabled access review site where disabled people, their families, friends and carers can find and share reviews on the accessibility of venues around the UK and beyond. This site is an invaluable tool for everything from planning a day out, to picking a last-minute place for coffee or lunch.

NEoN Digital Arts provides a platform to host the views of many different artists. The views expressed by the artists or within their work are personal and often represent lived experiences. Any views and opinions are voiced by the artists and do not represent those of people, institutions or organisations that NEoN may or may not be affiliated within a professional or personal capacity unless explicitly stated. Any views or opinions are not intended to malign any religion, ethnic group, club, organisation, or individual. 

Access Key Information

NEoN Digital Arts endeavours to make the festival as welcoming and easy to engage with as possible. If there is anything we can do to make your experience more enjoyable please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will try our best to help.

All events in our programme have a clear ‘Access’ section which identifies any additional support systems that are in place.

We have designed an 'Access Key' as a useful navigational tool to help identify which projects you may be interested in.

Access Key

V - Highly Visual / Minimal or No Text 

Projects with this tag will be highly visual and contain minimal or no text.

VT - Highly Visual / With Text

Projects with this tag will be highly visual and contain text. The text is currently not compatible with a screen reader.

S - Sound Based

Projects with this tag will be sound based, either audio works best experienced online, or predominantly text / sound based performances that have minimal visuals.

Projects marked CC will have live, or pre-recorded captions in English. These captions will express all text spoken. For some of the performance the captions will be optional and instructions on how to turn on the captions will be clearly described on the individual show pages.

BSL - Interpreted

Events marked BSL will be interpreted by British Sign Language interpreters. On each event page it will list whether the Interpretation is happening live, or filmed separately & edited in.

ML - Multilingual 

Google Translate will also be available to translate text. 

AD - Audio Description 

Audio description, or AD, is a spoken track that runs alongside the main broadcast providing a blind or partially sighted person with a description of the visual things happening on screen. AD is used where there is no dialogue from the program during silent periods. It describes elements like facial expressions, movement, gestures, body language and activity. The voice used for AD is a real person. 

AU - Audio Recording 

Text will be available as a sound recording. There will be a recording of a real person reading the text and available as an audio file to listen to. 

TTS - Text to Speech 

Text-to-speech is a software feature that reads text and converts it into synthesized speech. Also includes screen reader compatibility.

Content Notes

We have included 'content notes' on the individual event pages. These will highlight if the project includes reference to; sexual violence, graphic violence, emotional abuse, child abuse, domestic abuse, miscarriage, terminated pregnancy, alcohol or substance addiction. We appreciate this list is not comprehensive and encourage you to confidentially get in touch if there is a particular subject matter not listed you wish to avoid.
