Access and Inclusion in the Arts

Octapod designed and delivered inclusive Community Forums to facilitate cross sector dialogue around the significant social change presented by the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Octapod consequently co-developed new models of inclusive practice to build the capacity of the local arts and cultural sector to increase access for people with disability to participate and to provide artists with disability inclusive professional development opportunities. Octapod and Accessible Arts continue to work in partnership to ensure Newcastle’s arts and culture is accessible and inclusive of all.
