The past 18 months has brought us many challenges as a community and sector. The Arts was the first to be hit with long term uncertainty when everything came to a halt and we are still rebuilding.
While we have learnt to adapt and continue to be creative we need to look to the future and understand what is the best way forward for the d/Deaf and Disability, and Contemporary Arts Sector.
COVID-19 has shown for the creative industries to survive we need new approaches as the world we show our work in is evolving each day. We at Access2Arts are focussed on creating an organisation strategy that will help the sector grow and develop in this world.
To meet the needs of artists, arts workers, arts companies, the sector and people with a disability we are undertaking a new Strategic Plan that will articulate our role in the South Australian Arts sector.
We want you to be a part of that plan. Access2Arts wants to hear from you – our stakeholders, audiences and community. Our aim is to understand your needs so we can create a strategy that matches them.
Our first step is to survey your needs and you can participate in multiple ways. This is our first step in a wide consultation process. Our 10 minute survey will ask about your experiences – both positive and negative – with the arts, accessibility and inclusion. We will also ask what you believe the main issues facing the sector are and even our performance in representing you.
We want to know what you believe Access2Arts core focus should be and what types of services you want from us. What do we do well and what can we improve on?
This consultation period will run until 30th September and our very first question in the survey will give you the options of how you can be involved.
