Access

Consulting Services

We recognise your access needs may require tailored solutions.

Accessible Arts provides consulting services, with a focus on access audits and development of Disability Inclusion Action Plans (DIAP), that meet current legislation requirements and implement best practices.

Our consultants are experienced in arts accessibility with respect to government policy and facilitation in the arts and disability sector.

We seek to maintain an ongoing relationship with each of our clients ensuring a successful rollout of recommendations.

Consulting areas include:

Access Audits

Access audits are conducted by our team with the goal of reviewing the inclusiveness and accessibility of our client’s facilities and services. The focus of the audit depends on each client’s needs.

Disability Inclusion Action Plans (DIAP)

Disability and Inclusion Action Plans outline an organisation’s commitment to people with a disability on improving access to services, facilities and jobs, as well as the overall perception of people with disabilities.

Case Studies

 Art Gallery of NSW DIAP

Accessible Arts worked with the Art Gallery of NSW to develop their DIAP for 2017 – 2020. The action plan outlines specific access goals in line with the four pillars of the Disability Inclusion Act 2014; attitudes and behaviours, liveable communities, employment and systems and processes.

It was important for the Art Gallery of NSW to create an environment that allowed a greater level of inclusion and therefore Accessible Arts created a tailored approach to reaching this objective.

Blacktown Arts Centre DIAP

Blacktown City Council is committed to assisting people with a disability to participate fully in the community. As part of this, Accessible Arts worked with the Council to develop their DIAP specifically for the Blacktown Arts Centre.
