Accessible Arts promotes and provides opportunities for people with disability 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 disability can contribute to and fully experience the arts and cultural life.
Our Mission is to promote full inclusion, access, opportunities and leadership in the arts for people with disability through advocacy, education and information.
