Accessible Arts offers four open sessions per year in disability awareness training for managers, policy makers, frontline staff, cultural advisers, small businesses, and creative practitioners.
Accessible Arts consults to arts and community organisations to assist them with making venues accessible, services more inclusive, marketing to the disability sector and strategic initiatives that promote access and full inclusion.
We offer services including training in Disability Awareness, reviewing Disability Inclusion Action Plans, and undertaking Access Appraisals of arts and cultural organisations.
Future services include workshops in “How to develop you Disability Inclusion Action Plan”, and facilitating focus groups to provide essential feedback to arts and cultural organisations.
As part of our Access Program, information resources and guides are produced and available to assist arts managers support the inclusion and employment of people with disability in all areas of the arts.
Accessing the Arts information sheets and checklists provide support for venue managers to marketing directors.
We support industry professional development through facilitating regular meetings of Accessing The Arts Group (ATAG), hosting forums and by direct consultation. Accessible Arts occasionally undertakes model projects to explore, demonstrate or promote the importance of inclusive frameworks and environments to enable access and participation for all.

Everyone should be able to fully participate within society and physical accessibility plays a crucial role in achieving this goal.
