Being Accessible Online

Being Accessible Online Workshop

With so much of our lives having moved online, arts companies, cultural venues, event producers and other creative industry organisations are now delivering much more of their activities using online and digital channels. It’s a huge shift and we all need to upskill so online content and services can be accessed and enjoyed by the 1 in 5 Australians who live with disability of who are d/Deaf, a significant market segment for providers of arts, culture and events.

With the support of the Australia Council For The Arts, this new online workshop has been developed to specially address the needs of arts and cultural organisations so they can improve the accessibility and inclusiveness of their relevant online activities.

  • Discover practical solutions and ‘easy wins’ for delivering accessible:
    • Online performances
    • Online exhibitions
    • Online rehearsals and creative developments
    • Webinars
    • Panel discussions
    • Online meetings
    • Social media
  • Receive useful resources
  • Learn from trainers with disability who are arts and culture experts
  • Attend our standard workshop or book a bespoke private session

Learn about:

  • How to create an inclusive online space using various platforms
  • What to do before, during and after an online event to maximise accessibility
  • Online etiquette for accessible sound and visual content
  • Best tech solutions and ‘quick fixes’ for captioning, Auslan interpretation and audio description
  • Informative case studies from artists and arts organisations across a range of art forms

This workshop is 90 minutes. Prior to the session we’ll send you links to resources you can refer to before, during and after the workshop.
