Join our team of lived experience advisors

We are looking for people with lived experience of disability to become Accessible Arts advisors, to work with us on various projects relating to disability, access and the arts.

As an advisor, we would draw on your expertise for various projects Accessible Arts is involved with, with the aim of making the arts across NSW more accessible.

There are a number of ways in which you might work with us:

  • Be part of a venue ‘walk through’ team, auditing a museum, gallery or performance from an access perspective
  • Be part of a focus group looking at the accessibility of funding program guidelines and application form
  • Join us as a guest speaker for a training session, sharing your story as a person with lived experience of disability
  • Consult with Accessible Arts on your ideas and views on the programs and initiatives we offer, and the issues facing artists with disability.

Our core team includes artists and artsworkers with lived experience of disability, but establishing a group of advisors will ensure that more people’s voices are able to be heard and offer new and fresh perspectives on access. By joining us, you can have your say and influence the accessibility of the arts into the future.

Accessible Arts Advisors will be consulted on a casual, as needs basis, and all access requirements will be met to enable advisors to participate equally in projects.

Depending on each project, Advisors may receive payment, travel support, free tickets and/or training opportunities.

If you’re interested or would like to know more, please get in touch with us for more information.
