Museums & Galleries of NSW is pleased to announce that early bird registrations for the Arts Activated 2021 conference are now open.
The focus of this year’s conference is ensuring the post-COVID recovery of Australia’s arts and cultural sector is inclusive of arts practitioners and audiences with disability and we are excited to be part of such an important and timely conversation.
Attracting over 300 delegates, the conference is Australia’s leading arts and disability forum and will feature a mix of virtual and live sessions held over three Mondays in August – August 9, 16 and 23.
The virtual sessions will be presented in partnership with Western Sydney University (WSU) and four FREE live sessions will be presented in partnership with the Vivid Sydney festival.
Artists, arts workers, disability advocates, government workers and researchers are all being encouraged to attend to share ideas and approaches for ‘Building Back For Everyone’ which is the theme of this year’s conference.
The conference provides a really valuable opportunity for artists with disability to share their knowledge and experience as well as connect with other artists and arts workers from NSW and across Australia.— Accessible Arts Interim CEO Morwenna Collett
The program is still being finalised but will include over 20 sessions and events featuring several high profile Australian and international guests. Delegates will have a range of virtual and live networking options including being a member of the live studio audience at WSU for the broadcast of virtual sessions.
Registrations are available for community and industry members plus there’s a special early bird discount of 25% for delegates who purchase registrations by June 30.
Museums & Galleries of NSW is proud to be a supporting partner of the Arts Activated 2021 conference.
