Survey for Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences

Accessible Arts is working with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) to develop a Disability Inclusion and Action Plan (DIAP) and would appreciate your input via a survey.

As part of the process we wish to include as many voices of people with disability as possible.

The Survey

One of the tools we are using to collect feedback is an online survey. This survey will take 5 to 7 minutes to complete, and your input will be really valuable in shaping the plan for MAAS. The survey is for anyone, whether you are a regular visitor to the Museum or haven’t been for a number of years.

Please complete the survey by Monday 30 April 2018.

If you need assistance filling out the survey, please contact Liz Martin at Accessible Arts on 02 8379 3102 (Tuesday to Thursday).
