Accessible Arts NSW is conducting an information-gathering exercise on existing provision of music pathways for people with a disability in NSW. They are developing a picture of music activity for people with a disability by the end of April 2009.
Towards the end of June 2009, interested stakeholders will be invited to a creative forum that they hope will lead toward the development of a new statewide Accessible Music Program. If you would like to contribute to this initiative, the areas they are looking into are:
1. Finding out what pathways currently exist for people with a disability to pursue their creativity through music in NSW - including both formal and informal training or professional development
2. Talking to NSW musicians with a disability to identify their current practice and how they got there
3. Identifying potential resources (and resource limitations) - human, physical, technological, virtual etc - available to facilitate music development for people with a disability in NSW
