NSW arts and accessibility organisation Accessible Arts is running an in-person or online Access Ideas and Insights panel discussion as part of its Accessible Curation series.

Participants can explore curatorial practices that are shaping new standards of artistic excellence through commitment to accessibility, diversity and inclusion. It is also an opportunity to gain valuable insights from prominent curators and artists on the proactive design and integration of creative access into new exhibitions, public programs and festivals.

Learn from curators Luke Létourneau and Rilka Oakley as well as producer and comedian Madeleine Stewart. MC for the event is artist, curator and producer Amy Claire Mills.

Details: May 14: 3pm – 4pm: panel discussion (in person and online); 4pm – 4.30pm: afternoon tea and networking (in person).
