Arts Access Victoria provides project development, training, resources, mentorships, advice and information services for organisations and individuals from both the arts and disability sectors.
Arts Access Victoria works in partnership with people with a disability, the arts and cultural sector, community organisations and government, so that all Victorians can access the arts. We often work in partnership with community organisations to establish independent locally managed arts projects.
