Event description

Description

Join access advocates in the wider community, as they discuss and share insights into accessibility and inclusion in the arts sector.

Facilitated by Caine Chennatt, access advocate at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery , the conversation will flow around ideas, suggestions and insights on how museums, galleries and art centres other can embed empathetic and inclusive design principles at the heart of their programs.

This forum will also mark the launch and the first session of the newly formed Arts and Cultural Access Consortium, which brings together cultural administrators and arts workers seeking to create more inclusive programs and workplaces.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Scott Hollier, Digital Access Specialist, Author and Lecture: With a Ph.D. in Internet Studies and project management experience across the not-for-profit, corporate and government sectors, Scott is an internationally-recognised researcher and speaker. While his commitment to supporting the needs of people with disabilities is well recognised, it’s his other pursuits that often highlight his ability to overcome the little things to achieve the everyday things as a legally blind person – be it retro gaming, giving back to the community, running with the Olympic Torch or travelling to all seven continents.
  • Simone Flavelle, Digital Producer at DADAA. DADAA is a not-for-profit community arts and cultural development (CACD) organisation, focusing on creating significant positive social change and opportunities for people with a disability or a mental illness.
  • More speakers to be announced shortly.

Facilitated by:

  • Caine Chennatt, Access advocate at LWAG, Audience Development Manager at UWA Cultural Precinct


This event is held in support of the United Nations International Day of People with Disability on December 3.
