Arts Activated 2019 Program Outline Released

Daniel Monks Head Shot

With over 22 sessions, presentations, workshops and networking events, Arts Activated 2019 is set to inform, entertain and connect a diverse range delegates from across NSW and Australia. 

Two international guests will headline the conference and share their insights on innovative ways to make change happen. They'll be joined by some Australia's leading figures from the arts, culture and disability sectors who'll work with delegates to develop strategies, improve practice and create opportunities. 

Topics that will be discussed include: reshaping the disability arts narrative; developing Inclusive performances, programs and venues; advancing authentic casting; the future of accessible tech/design; unpacking Disability Inclusion Action Plans; the intersection of identities; and boosting training and career development for artists and arts workers with disability.
