Event description

Description

Writers Victoria and Arts Access Victoria are thrilled to offer disability awareness training tailored specifically to the publishing industry at the heavily discounted rate of $25* (over 80% discount) to SPN delegates.

The training will cover:

  • Best practice language on disability
  • The Social Model of Disability
  • Barriers to participation and how the arts can 'open doors'
  • Knowing your organisation's obligations
  • The creative case for inclusion, beyond compliance

Our facilitators are artists with disability, skilled at using their creative talents to illuminate complex issues around access and inclusion.

Open Your Eyes will equip you with the skills and tools to engage confidently with people with disability to create environments of equality and authentic representation.

*The ticket price will go directly into the development of a free toolkit on disability for the publishing industry.

Spaces are limited so booking is essential. For enquiries please contact Jax Jacki Brown publishability@writersvictoria.org.au

This training is supported by The State Library of Victoria​.
