Access2Arts is the peak body for Arts and Disability in South Australia. We support d/Deaf and disabled people in South Australia to get involved in the arts as audiences, participants, artists, arts workers and leaders. We also support arts and cultural organisations to become more inclusive and accessible.
We celebrate the unique perspectives, stories and aesthetics of d/Deaf and disabled artists, and the value of telling our own authentic stories through art and amplify the voices of d/Deaf and disabled people in the arts. Our purpose is to foster an inclusive arts community that develops, embraces and celebrates the unique talents, skills and perspectives of people who are d/Deaf or disabled.
As a disability-led arts development organisation, we support d/Deaf and disabled artists and companies to make and present some of the most unique, experimental and exciting art in Australia. We do that through: developing knowledge, skills and pathways; providing services; and delivering projects that respond to community needs.
As an access expert and advocate, we support arts organisations to increase access, inclusion and representation of d/Deaf and disabled people. We do that through: modelling and encouraging disability-leadership, excellence and best practice; providing training and capacity building for individuals and organisations; disrupting and challenging assumptions; and changing minds, attitudes and actions.
