Arts Activated Conference 2012

Arts Activated Conference 2012Desire and Destination

The third Arts Activated conference was held at The Concourse in Chatswood, Sydney on 30 and 31 October 2012.  Arts Activated, Australia’s only national arts and disability conference, brings together leading thinkers, artists, advocates, practitioners and producers with and without disability from across Australia and overseas. 350 delegates enjoyed two full days of presentations and performances on the theme of Desire and Destination, to network, debate, and further strengthen Australia’s arts and disability sector.

The program included 150 presenters, 20 breakout sessions in 4 streams, 6 performance showcases, and a range of international and interstate keynote and plenary speakers. For the first time a social and cultural program ran parallel to the conference with events presented across Sydney by a range of arts & disability stakeholders.
Accessible Arts has collated session transcripts and papers, which are now available online to download.
