    The COVID-19 pandemic has turbo-charged the use of digital technology for both arts practitioners and audiences with disability, and that means it’s now more important than ever that arts and cultural organisations think about the accessibility of their online content and services. But what about post-COVID? Will everyone be more open to working, living and playing online? And what will this mean for creative industries in terms of connecting with people with disability?

    Join us for this FREE online panel discussion to find out how arts and cultural workers can use some basic approaches and simple tech solutions to be more inclusive of people with disability in the digital domain, both right now and into the future.

    Learn about:

    • New ways that artists are producing and audiences are engaging with digital content and the barriers that prevent people with disability from having equitable access
    • How to incorporate accessibility features – such as captioning, Auslan interpreting and audio description – into the delivery of online programming and services
    • Overcoming the challenges of balancing interactivity and accessibility

    Speakers:

    • Ian RT Colless - First Nations Project Officer of Capacity Building, Australia Council for the Arts
    • Frances Robinson - Project Officer for Capacity Building, Australia Council for the Arts
    • Kattie Bugeja - Arts Administrator, Maitland Regional Art Gallery
    • Dr Riona Tindal – Deaf Arts Coordinator, Accessible Art
