Festivalgoers with disabilities

Every year, the Festival d’Avignon works to make sure that people with disabilities aren’t excluded from culture, and we have been developing measures to respond to individual needs: maps of the venues with access information for people with reduced mobility, training of our staff to better respond to the needs of people with disabilities, increased number of subtitled plays and of electronic glasses with built-in surtitles, audio description…

An accessible website
With FACIL’iti, our website’s layout adapts to the needs of people with visual, motor, or cognitive disabilities. Many profiles are available to fit the needs of as many people as possible: visual impairment, Parkinson’s disease, age-related muscle loss, colour blindness, dyslexia, etc.
For a more comfortable experience, you can now customise the layout by choosing the profile that best suits you.
