Training and Advice

Access2Arts offers a range of disability-led training programs and advice.

Disability Access and Inclusion Planning

Creating a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) will help your organisation increase disabled people’s engagement with all aspects of your organisation. DAIPs build on what you’ve already done, examine your capacity to do more and help your organisation move forward in a staged and strategic way.

Disability Access & Inclusion Training

Learn how to go beyond the bare minimum. Find out about the Social Model of Disability, examine the barriers disabled people face across the Australian arts sector, question stereotypes, myths and misconceptions about disabled people, and make a commitment to change.

It opens my eyes to the disability world. I came here knowing nothing about (the) disability world and now I feel great knowing what to do to fulfill some
people access requirements.
