Round 1 of the 21/22 Arts and Cultural Funding Program is open for applications – and what better way to encourage NSW artists, arts and cultural workers and organisations to apply for funding – than to showcase the diversity of funding recipients from previous years.

In 2020, Accessible Arts – the peak arts and disability organisation in NSW received organisation funding towards their Equitable Participation Initiative for it’s Arts Activated Conference in 2021.  The initiative has provided Accessible Arts with additional resources to deliver an accessible and inclusive event that responds to the impact of the COVID pandemic and ensures the equitable participation of delegates who live with disability.

Accessible Arts Marketing & Development Manager Michael Badorrek said, “In this difficult time, receiving this support has made a huge difference in terms of our capacity to use a range of digital technologies to provide a best practice virtual experience for both our community members and industry supporters.”
