Opération Chaise rouge
Visions du Réel is working with Chaise Rouge – a service offered by the Croix-Rouge vaudoise in Vaud with the support of Pro Infirmis Vaud – to offer personal assistance for different types of disability.
People with disabilities who wish to benefit from the assistance service from Chaise Rouge throughout the evening can contact the Red Cross in Vaud, which will put them in touch with a volunteer, subject to availability.
Contact the Red Cross in Vaud on: 021 340 00 99 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This service is free and available only by registering at least two weeks before the evening in question.
The Festival team is made aware of the importance of inclusion and is given information on the measures in place. A guide to basic French sign language is available.
