In March 2008, the Victorian Office for Disability in partnership with Arts Victoria and Disability Services Division commenced a research project to examine ways to increase the participation of people with a disability in the arts as artists and as audience members.
‘Picture This: Increasing the cultural participation of people with a disability in Victoria’ details findings of the research and paint a picture of the arts and disability landscape within Victoria, nationally and internationally.
These reports provide a unique snapshot of a dynamic and burgeoning Victorian arts and disability sector, and also identify some of the barriers that we need to continue to work to remove. They offer ideas, suggestions and possible strategies for increasing the cultural participation of Deaf and Disabled people, relevant to both government and community.
The full report and an Easy English version are available at the Creative Victoria website.
