Event description
How does the government plan to support artists with disability? Hear directly from MPs and candidates in this live-streamed Q&A forum.

About this Event

Artists with disability earn 42% less than artists without disability.

In the lead-up to 2019 Federal Election, Arts Access Australia (AAA) will host the Arts and Disability Pre-Election Forum to provide an opportunity for MPs and candidates to address this issue.

Doors will open at 10am AWST for a 10.30am start. Live-streaming will begin at 10.30 am AWST.

The forum will begin with MPs and candidates presenting each party's approach to creating equal access to the arts for people with disability.

Each MP and candidate will also be invited to respond to AAA"s #RealMoneyRealJobs campaign.

The public will then be invited to ask MPs and candidates their questions about accessibility in the arts.
