Arts for All: Providing access and inclusion to arts and culture for everyone.

Join us for a presentation and discussion about how to make your arts project, place or programme more accessible for and inclusive of disabled people. Our speaker is Richard Benge, Executive Director of Arts Access Aotearoa.

Arts Access Aotearoa supports arts organisations and venues to increase their accessibility, builds the capability and leadership skills of grass-roots community organisations providing arts opportunities to people with a disability, raises public awareness about access to the arts and provides a national information service. It is also the lead organisation advocating for the arts to be used as a rehabilitation tool for prisoners.

Arts Access Aotearoa reaches out to representatives from live performance venues, museums, art galleries, producers and festivals – anyone who has art or cultural experiences to promote. At regional seminars participants learn the steps that accessibility champions around Aotearoa are taking, so their arts events or experiences are inclusive and accessisble for disabled people.

Arts Access Aotearoa has free useful resources for particiants to guide them on their journey - providing accessible arts and cultural inclusion for their community.

Attend this presentation to:

  • Learn about how your organisation or place can be more accessible and inclusive of anyone who faces a barrier to inclusion.
  • Discover a network of people and organisations working to make the arts accessible and inclusive for everyone
  • Get access to free resources to assit your organisation, programme or event to be more accessible
