Accessible Cultural Tourism | ATAG Canberra 20 Sep

For people working in arts, culture and events, tourists and travellers comprise an important part of their audience. About 20% of people live with a disability and this makes them a significant market segment, so accommodating their needs is a smart audience development strategy.

Join us for this FREE meet up and networking event to help you understand how to attract more visitors by improving the accessibility of your programming, services and infrastructure. You’ll also get to mix, mingle and network with representatives from Canberra’s arts, culture, tourism and events sectors. Light refreshments will be provided.

Learn about:

  • Key issues which affect how people with disability engage with arts, culture, tourism and events
  • How arts organisations and festival operators can build audiences through established processes and innovative approaches
  • Quick and easy wins you can make around accessibility


  • Adriane Boag, Programs Producer, National Gallery of Australia
  • Azra Khan, Director, National Multicultural Festival


This is an Auslan Accessible event.

Please register any access or dietary requirements when booking.
