Workers in the arts, culture and events sectors are being encouraged to get ‘access-orised’ for a post-COVID marketplace where the need to be inclusive of artists and audiences with disability has never been more vital.
The focus is on helping workers understand how to maximise the business benefits of accessibility and inclusion for people with disability.
Every month throughout 2021, Accessible Arts will offer two different online workshops via Zoom:
Delivering Accessible Online Events Workshop: Post-COVID, we’ll all continue to live more of our lives online. This 90-minute workshop helps arts, culture and events workers improve the accessibility and inclusiveness of their relevant online activities such as performances, exhibitions, rehearsals, creative developments, webinars, panel discussions, meetings and social media.
Disability Confidence Training Workshop : This 90-minute workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to understanding disability in the context of arts and culture including identifying and mitigating access barriers, best practice for customer service, language and etiquette, and inclusive communication skills and policies.
Workshop participants learn from arts experts who live with disability plus they’ll receive a range of useful resources to help them put their new knowledge into practice.
Workshops are $95 per person with a 10 percent discount available for bookings of three or more attendees. Private workshops are also available as either online or live sessions.
