Arts Access Victoria welcomes enquiries from media organisations regarding any of AAV's programs, advocacy, events and artists.

Please note that we encourage all writers and journalists to refer to our resource A guide to talking about disability to ensure that artists are represented accurately. Our media releases and newsletters help us advocate for artists with lived experience of disability to be included in the arts throughout Victoria. 

For more information, comments, interviews or to source images from Arts Access Victoria for use in your publication please contact [email protected]
