Behind the scenes at the Newcastle Museum

Newcastle Museum, home to fascinating treasures, intriguing objects and exhibitions full of stories, is an accessible space that supports arts and cultural participation for people with disability.

Octapod and Newcastle Museum are partnering to present a special inside look at the Museum – its history, programs, displays, exhibitions and venue. Come along and experience a fun and creative way of engaging with the Museum plus take a guided tour around one of the permanent exhibitions, A Newcastle Story.  There will also be an opportunity to network over a coffee in the Sprout Canteen in the Museum building, afterwards.

If you support arts and cultural participation for people with disability, join this Creative Access Network gathering at the Newcastle Museum on the morning of Wednesday 16 July, 2014.

Through this special event of the Creative Access Network, Octapod aims to support people with disability to have more choices and better access to mainstream arts experiences, as well as provide an opportunity for the arts and disability communities to come together in an accessible arts and cultural setting.
