Disability Awareness Training

Accessible Arts offers disability awareness training for managers, policy makers, frontline staff, cultural advisers, small businesses, and creative practitioners.

The information and skill development gained from this training is crucial for effective delivery of arts strategy, arts and culture programmes, festival events and quality customer service. We offer practical and innovative solutions to give you the confidence to welcome people with disability to your venue, provide inclusive experiences and make accessibility a natural and integrated part of what you do.

Each session is four hours and covers

  • Defining disability – legally and culturally
  • The rumours and realities of the disability experience
  • Communicating with respect and confidence
  • Access barriers and creative solutions

The benefit of these disability awareness training workshops include networking, sharing and learning from the diverse experience in the room. Up to three staff from one organisation can attend these open workshops, and the workshops are followed-up by six months of free access to Arts Access Australia’s online learning portal.
