Cooking with support

These are tips for accessible cooking/ cooking with support – tips from a workshop which resulted in this co created cookbook.

We published a cookbook from the shared recipes, adding some wonderful illustrations from Deborah Caulfield. We did a hard copy because we realised for many deaf and disabled and older people, they missed out on digital resources as they do not have access – for a variety of reasons. However, there are QR codes linked in the book for further information and resources.

This is funded by Greenwich Council so if you would like a copy and you are in #RBG send us an email at

Scored in SIlence – Dance Documentary
Film screening of excerpt from “Scored in Silence” (12 mins) followed by a Q&A from Chisato Minamimura and producer Amy Zamarripa Solis (8 mins). There will be sound, music, sign mime and voiceover in the film, as well as a live BSL interpreter. 

“Scored in Silence” is Chisato’s new solo digital artwork that unpacks the untold tales of deaf hibakusha – survivors of the A-Bombs that fell in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 and their experiences at the time and afterwards. 2020 is the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki Bombings and it is also the year that Tokyo will also host the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“Scored in Silence” was developed alongside partners VibraFusionLab in Ontario, Canada and showcased at Brighton Digital Festival and Manchester Science Festival in 2018. It was selected for the British Council Edinburgh Fringe Festival Showcase in August 2019.
It will be part of Disabled & Proud Festival evening performances 6-8pm.
