Experience more colour during your visit to BREC with the EnChroma Colour Accessibility Program!
Did you know Colour blindness affects 350 million people worldwide – 1 in 12 men (8%) and 1 in 200 women (.5%).
BREC are proud to be the first theatre in Australia to offer the EnChroma Colour Accessibility Program, to support people experiencing colour blindness see an expanded range of colours while attending a show, film or event at BREC. The glasses are not a cure for colour blindness but work for 9 out of 10 colour blind people.
EnChroma Glasses are available for complimentary use whilst visiting BREC.
Types of glasses available:
We are all different, which is why different types of glasses are available for use while visiting BREC:
- Standard glasses, suitable for adults
- Glasses for children
- Glasses for adults that can be worn on top of prescription glasses
Glasses can be checked out at the Box office, as you arrive for your event, with a government issued photo identification.
How do EnChroma glasses work?
EnChroma glasses use special optical filters that help the colour blind see an expanded range of colour and to see it more clearly, vibrantly and distinctly.
EnChroma’s lens technology increases contrast between the red and green colour signals, alleviating symptoms of colour blindness for a richer experience of the world.

Are you colour blind or know someone who is?
BREC has partnered with EnChroma, to support people experiencing colour blindness see an expanded range of colours while attending a show, film or event at BREC.
If you are colour blind, or have a family member, co-worker or friend who is, we invite you to complete our expression of interest form below to be part of the BREC Enchroma reveal event, where participants will try on the glasses for the first time. The lucky participants will be gifted a pair of Enchroma colour blind glasses for their participation.
You must be willing to speak with the media about what it’s like to be colour blind, how colours appear to you, then try the EnChroma glasses and describe what you experience. It will require about an hour of your time. We will contact those selected well in advance of the date and provide details.
Applications close Tuesday 20th June 2023
