Introducing Alter State
Alter State is a major disability arts festival celebrating contemporary art and live performance by artists from Australia and Aotearoa (NZ).
Alter State provides a platform for Deaf and Disabled artists to tell stories informed by their own lived experience of disability. It is a deep dive into disability arts from our region, and a space to showcase its creative and cultural history.
“Alter State is more than a presentation of amazing art, it is a two year journey of artists exploring creativity shaped by our geographic location and histories, telling stories from our region and delving into new approaches to Access in a program that we hope will seed and imagine diverse futures,”
– Wendy O’Neill, Arts Centre Melbourne’s Creative Producer, Access Inclusion and Alter State Lead
