Regional Arts For All Networks

Arts Access Aotearoa facilitates, supports and liaises with five regional Arts For All Networks across New Zealand. These networks aim to encourage festivals, performing arts companies, literary organisations, museums, galleries, venues and producers to improve their access to disabled audiences.

These networks are made up of representatives from the disability sector, arts and cultural organisations, and venues. They meet twice a year to gain insights, seek advice, and share information and resources.

The five regional networks are:

For more information about the networks and to join, contact Stace Robertson, Access and Participation Advisor, Arts Access Aotearoa (T: 04 802 4349 E: stace.robertson@artsaccess.org.nz).

Arts For All Network virtual meetings series June 2020

As you may know, the regional Arts For All Network meetings planned for March and April were postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. So we are taking the  opportunity to connect virtually, which is exciting, because it means we can connect with Arts For All Network members nationally. We are hosting four meetings, each focusing on a particular artform type, discussing accessibility as it relates to different artforms. Please join us and come prepared to have great discussions, network, learn from and support others in the group. 

The meetings will be held on Zoom and will run for approximately 90 minutes, with short presentations in each meeting followed by a time for questions and discussion.

Spaces are limited so you will need to RSVP to Stace Robertson as well as indicate which meetings you would like to attend. The Zoom link and password will be sent out to those who have RSVP'd the day before the meeting.

If you require New Zealand Sign Language interpreters, do let Stace know ASAP.
