Designed for arts, culture and events workers, this workshop will improve how you connect with and support people with disability.

About this Event

Our online Disability Confidence Training workshop is all about helping you and your team improve how you connect with and support people with disability or who are d/Deaf.

1 in 5 Australians live with disability, making them a significant market segment for providers of arts and culture. In this workshop you’ll:

  • Discover practical solutions for making your organisation disability confident
  • Receive useful resources
  • Learn from trainers with disability who are arts experts
  • Enjoy the increased accessibility and convenience of online training

The training covers:

  • Key disability legislation and government bodies, including Disability Discrimination Act and the Disability Inclusion Act
  • Creative solutions to delivering inclusive and accessible arts and culture programs
  • Identifying and mitigating access barriers
  • Best practice for customer service, language and etiquette
  • Inclusive communication skills and policies
