As patron of Disability Arts Cymru, I’m always happy to publicise and promote the sterling work they do. What follows is information about their surgeries for Arts Organisations in Wales, regarding disability access and inclusion.
Please share with any organisation in Wales who you feel would be interested in this. Please contact Disability Arts Cymru, at the address below regarding this.
Disability Access and Inclusion – Surgeries for Arts Organisations
Disability Arts Cymru is working in partnership with Creu Cymru and Hynt to run a series of surgeries free of charge on disability access and inclusion for arts organisations.
If you are in the process of developing a Diversity Strategy or a Disability Action Plan, the surgeries are for you!
Concerned about access backstage or at your office? Wondering about employing disabled artists? Want to engage better with disabled people?
Bring your queries about practical access, front of house issues, audience development, improving access to performances, workshops, events.
At Disability Arts Cymru we are also interested in developing networks in the arts, so that we can work together to support emerging and established disabled artists. We cover all art forms and work with all disabled people, so we are keen to talk to you too and to look at how we can be more effective together.
