Arts Activated 2019 Conference

Get informed. Get connected. Get activated! 

The Arts Activated 2019 Conference is one of Australia’s leading forums for making arts and culture in Australia more accessible for artists and audiences with disability or who are Deaf. 

Produced by Accessible Arts – NSW’s peak arts and disability organisation – the biennial event attracts up to 300 artists, arts workers, disability advocates and researchers from across Australia and is an important forum for planning real change and growth across Australia’s disability arts sector. 

The program includes over 20 sessions and events and will feature several high profile Australian and international guests. 

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Making It Happen Today’ and so the focus is on fast tracking improvements to accessibility across the arts, cultural and event sectors.
