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 six regional networks are:
- Arts For All Auckland
- Arts For All Canterbury
- Arts For All Otago
- Arts For All Taranaki
- Arts For All Hawke's Bay
- Arts For All Wellington
