Arts activated - Arts and disability conference in Australia!
The premiere biennial arts and disability conference in Australia, ‘Arts Activated’ showcases the accomplishments of people with disability, as leaders, arts practitioners, audience and advocates, alongside best practice initiatives from arts and culture industry.
The conference fills the gap in the exchange of knowledge and ideas within the arts and disability sector, both nationally and internationally. As the leading conference in Australia dedicated to arts and disability, the event offers a unique opportunity for professionals to come together, share ideas and create stronger partnerships whilst being inspired by a diverse range of nationally and internationally recognised experts in the fields.
Across a two-day event, the conference provides the perfect opportunity to explore, debate, and connect to future pathways for people with disability relating to accessible arts practice.
‘Arts Activated 2016 - Pathways to Practice’, will explore the varied paths that artists with disability take in developing their practice during their career and how organisations are fostering pathways for artists and audiences with disability.
What's in it for the artists:
- Chance to meet the funders, role models, organisations for future opportunities / work, in a climate where arts and disability and disability arts are currently on the map
- Contribute to the voice and rigour around discussions that directly impact on their lives and careers
