Website of the week: Accessible Arts

If you have any interest in the arts and in a person with a disability living in NSW, Accessible Arts needs to be on your 'favourites' list.

Accessible Arts promotes and provides opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in arts and cultural activities either as audience members; through attending galleries, theatres, museums and festivals; or as participants in art, drama, music, dance and multimedia activities; and by developing as professional artists.

Our vision is a society in which people with disabilities can contribute to and fully experience the arts and cultural life.

The website is easy to navigate and full of information that is well organised - dates, times, places, costs, venue accessibility are all addressed.  Subscribe to the monthly e-Newsletter so that you don't miss out on anything.  You will often see stories about people with Down syndrome involved a wide range of activities.  Information is provided about events and activities designed especially for people with disabilities, and about people with disabilities participating in mainstream events and activities, right across NSW.
If you want to know what's on, what's in the planning, what opportunities are open, how to make an event or activity accessible, or who's doing what, when and where, Accessible Arts is the place to find out. Accessible Arts is also on Facebook and Twitter - these people are connected, and they really know what they are doing.
