Strategic Framework

The Accessible Arts Strategic Framework identifies objectives and methods for each of the above three aims.

For example, the first objective is to raise the profile of artists with disability. The first method to achieve this objective is to consult and partner with government bodies, arts organisations, and the broader commercial and not for profit communities to advocate for full inclusion and recognition of artists with disability and the excellence of their outputs.

The Strategic Framework may be read as a PDF or as a text only document.
