Accessible Arts’ ‘In Conversation’ events provide a vital platform for artists with disability to talk in depth about their work to an audience of artists and enthusiasts, disabled and non-disabled. Last years’ ‘In Conversation’ events included an interview between Dan Daw and Michelle Silby which was a partnership event between Accessible Arts, Sydney Festival and AusDance, held at Carriageworks as part of Sydney Festival. We also held an In Conversation between Jodee Mundy and Alex Jones, a partnership between Accessible Arts and Riverside Theatres, alongside Jodee Mundy’s new theatre work ‘Personal’ which was shown during 2018 at both The Sydney Opera House and Riverside Theatres.

This event is proudly brought to you by Accessible Arts in partnership with the Sydney Theatre Company.
