Accessible Arts is running disability-led Screen Access and Inclusion Masterclass programs in April/May.
The program has been developed by NIDA graduate Bridie McKim, who will facilitate the online and masterclasses for screen practitioners with disability or who are d/Deaf. McKim was the first actor with disability to play a lead role on Australian television, as Sabine in ‘The Heights’.
Together with screen industry experts with lived experience of disability, she has developed a 90-minute Masterclass designed to boost confidence through acquiring practical knowledge about navigating the screen industry, understanding your rights and responsibilities and writing and submitting access riders.
An in-person program will be held on April 27, in Parramatta, Sydney and the online class on May 24, from 10.30am – 12pm.
Captioning and Auslan interpretation are available upon request and the training venue is wheelchair accessible.
