Online Round Table Discussion

Towards an Accessible Cultural Ecosystem: Cross-sector Collaboration in the Arts

In recent years, there have been encouraging shifts in the global arts and disability scene. Inclusive practices have gained greater traction with cultural institutions, academia, and the social service sector. Stakeholders and artists are advocating for greater inclusion in arts programmes for and by people with diverse abilities.

This online roundtable discussion will bring together local and overseas artists, arts practitioners, educators and social service professionals to share their experiences and best practices in arts training, audience development and community engagement. The session will also seek to establish pathways to promote collaboration in these areas in the future to foster a more inclusive society worldwide.
