CREATIVE ACCESS NETWORK - Connecting arts and disability in the Hunter region.
Please come along and contribute to the Creative Access Network. Confirmed speakers include representatives from Disability Care Australia and Ability Links NSW - Hunter operator St Vincent de Paul Society. There will also be a group discussion about inclusive practice.
Accessible Arts have relaunched their Accessing the Arts resources. Available for download from their website: http://www.aarts.net.au/resources/accessing-the-arts/
Covering topics such as:
- Disability awareness

The language of disability changes quickly and different terms are used within and outside of Australia. It can be political, it can be very personal and can sometimes be quite confusing.
But don’t panic! If you have good intentions and treat everyone with respect, you’ll get by.
