NSW’s top arts and disability organisation, Accessible Arts is launching an online workshop to help various organisations connect with and support people with disabilities in relation to online content and services.

Accessible Arts upskills up to 1000 people yearly through its disability training programs, which now includes the online Disability Confidence Training workshop, which has been tailored in response to the COVID-19 shutdowns.

The program now includes practical information about engaging online with audiences and staff in ways which promote inclusivity and accessibility. There is also a current two for one offer for participants.

The next workshop is scheduled for Wednesday July 15. Private and bespoke online training sessions are also available.

The CEO of Accessible Arts, Kerry Comerford said, “Our Zoom workshops are only 90 minutes and provide a great overview of all the relevant issues. Participants will discover some easy solutions for improving access and inclusion, learn best practice for customer service, language and etiquette, and receive some very useful resources.

“We’re experts in arts and disability, and all our trainers are practicing artists who have lived experience of disability.”
