Arts For All Canterbury Network
The Arts For All Canterbury Network is made up of representatives from the disability sector, arts and cultural organisations, and venues. Its members meet throughout the year to gain insights, seek advice, and share information and resources.
POWERFUL EXAMPLE: Canterbury Museum was presented the Arts Access Museum Award 2018 for its exhibition, The Bristlecone Project, at Museums Aotearoa's conference in May. Presenting the award, Richard Benge, Executive Director of Arts Access Aotearoa, said the exhibition was a "power example of how museums can include the voices, stories, experience and history of people who have experienced inclusion." Canterbury Museum is a member of the Arts For All Canterbury Network.
