Arts and the Individual: forum, Newcastle

Accessible Arts is keen to understand more about issues for artists with disability in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) launch site of the Hunter region so we have partnered with the Octapod Association and the City of Newcastle to develop a forum.

Arts and the Individual - a forum to explore how the NDIS can assist artists with disability aims to

  • provide a place where artists with disability, carers and service providers can explore issues associated with the launch of the NDIS in the Hunter region
  • develop an understanding of issues of concern and an approach to advocacy during the roll-out of the NDIS
  • develop networks of artists with disability in the Hunter region.
"People with disability should be in the driver’s seat when it comes to innovation. They should be asked what they want to do with their lives; that’s what should bring about change."  Participant, National Disability and Carer Alliance NDIS consultations, 2012
