Introducing Arts Access Aotearoa

Our key stakeholders are people with physical, sensory or intellectual impairments; individuals and organisations in the community and professional arts sectors; and mental health service users. We are also the key organisation in New Zealand facilitating the arts as a tool to support the rehabilitative process of prisoners.
