Making Performing Arts Venues Accessible to All

Accessible Arts (AA) is the peak arts and disability organisation across New South Wales.

AA promotes and provides opportunities for people with disability to participate in arts and cultural activities either as audience members; through attending galleries, theatres, museums and festivals; or as participants in art, drama, music, dance and multimedia activities; and by developing as professional artists.

AA has produced a great resource for performing arts venues to use in considering how to make their venues accessible to all in the community, including people with a disability.

The areas of consideration include: 
  • Improving access to venues
  • Marketing and Publication to the disability sector
  • Training performing arts venue staff
  • Anti-discrimination legislation compliance for venues
