Zebra Access

Hands-on involvement with the Deaf community

Zebra Access is a non-profit company closely linked to the needs of the Deaf community. It was formed in 2005 to deliver media and other training for Deaf people in BSL.

The company works in partnership with funding bodies and other organisations. This enables us to deliver 

training free of charge to the participants.

Although we specialise in media training, we also deliver courses on a wide range of topics that include employment and health, for example.

We use British Sign Language (BSL) to deliver training in media that includes:

  • Film production
  • Animation
  • Broadcast presentation
  • TV In-Vision Signing and Performing Arts

Media workshops include:

  • Young Deaf Film-makers, with Light House and Hi8US, funded by Mediabox;
  • TV Presenting, In-Vision Interpreting and Performing Arts, in partnership with Light House and Hi8US, funded by Screen West Midlands.
  • Ben Steiner Film Bursary (2009 -2012)

You can see footage of some of our workshops and the films made by participants on the Deaf Media Resource website.
