Following the formalities of Arts Access Aotearoa’s 24th Annual General Meeting via Zoom on 27 May, Pascale Parenteau, Education, Community and Accessibility Manager for the Royal New Zealand Ballet talked about her accessibility journey with the national ballet company.

Pascale is the driving force behind the RNZB's groundbreaking accessibility and inclusion programme, which has enabled the company to broaden its reach and be more inclusive of diverse audiences.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet received the Arts Access Creative New Zealand Arts For All Award 2019 for its leadership and commitment to building new audiences by making ballet accessible to diverse audiences. This includes blind and low vision patrons, Deaf people, children in low-decile schools, and prisoners.
