About The Share Initiative

The Share Initiative (known as ‘TSI’) is a not-for-profit organisation based in the UK.

We specialise in five areas: partnerships / learning / heritage / special needs / international projects.

Our work covers most of Europe – from Greece to Iceland / from Poland to Turkey.

We can produce signed, subtitled High Def films in different languages to illustrate European cooperation.

These can be distributed on a variety of platforms – DVD / web-based.

We also lead European projects of our own for adult learning.

A contract with the Royal National College for the Blind in the UK called AHVIIT-ACCESS included film work in the Netherlands, Germany. The project aimed to improve the inclusion of workers or trainees who are blind or visually impaired in vocational training programmes. It involved developing audio-haptic technology using talking tactile overlays. TSI produced the DVD and online versions which involved subtitling and signing in English.

A second project with RNCB called AHVITED involved film work in Austria and Ireland. The project aimed to develop graphical distance learning materials for visually-impaired learners. TSI produced a training film in English with subtitles in Danish, German, Italian and Romanian – together with a project film showing European cooperation.

Currently TSI are working with RNCB on a project called MUSICC with film work in Bulgaria and Italy. The project aims to improve multi-sensory understanding of climate change for both visually-impaired and hearing-impaired learners across Europe. TSI are producing training and project films with signing and subtitling in Bulgarian, English and Turkish.

TSI lead a project called AURORA POLARIS with film work in Greece, Poland, Slovakia and the UK. This project is developing European astronomy resources. TSI are producing both a signed and subtitled film using high-resolution astronomical images and a heritage film in four languages featuring one astronomer from each country for adult learners across Europe.

TSI’s new project called ESTA will include film work in Greece and Iceland. This project focuses on illustrated storytelling in the partner countries and will produce a signed and subtitled film in three languages for adult learners across Europe.

TSI are keen to further develop our special needs and digital media skills through new European projects. If you are working with disadvantaged groups in Europe and are interested in developing a film resource then we would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact TSI Director:
