Established in 1974, Arts Access Victoria (AAV) is the state’s peak body for arts and disability.
As a disability-led arts organisation, AAV is at the forefront of innovative disability arts practice, access and inclusion.
We aim to achieve cultural equity for Deaf and Disabled Victorians by:
- Getting Creative: We present more than 25 arts projects with 1500 Deaf and Disabled artists each year. We reach audiences of more than 80000 people.
- Creating Change: We advocate for inclusion and access to the arts in Victoria. We do some of this work through our public presentations, training and resources.
- Offering NDIS help: We work with Deaf and Disabled Victorians to make the arts part of their NDIS plans. We are a registered NDIS provider.
