This month from the Amplify Collective

Hello there!

Topics around accessibility are front and centre this month for the Amplify Collective. Nicole Smith’s tips on accessible writing provide practical steps to reach a broader audience, while Charmaine Idris shares her first-hand experience of an accessible tour at SWELL Sculpture Festival on Currumbin Beach.

Two theatre companies are also doing crucial work. Heidi Everett covered the importance of Disabled-led theatre organisation Weave Movement Company with its latest performance, and Christine Davey shone a light on Strangeways Ensemble, which provides a critical platform for performers who are neurodiverse.

In reviews we have a hilarious musical by an all-female cast, the Kill Your Darlings short story collection, a round-up of three innovative and thought-provoking Sydney Fringe performances and more.

Also a special mention to our first international story, a postcard from Hong Kong sent to ArtsHub readers by Jahan Rezakhanlou. Enjoy!

Amplify Collective is an initiative supported by The Walkley Foundation and made possible through funding from the Meta Australian News Fund.
