Thursday 30 November 2017, 6-7:30pm @ Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery  ◆

Caine Chennatt investigates the role cultural organisations can play in fostering inclusive communities. On being awarded a Churchill Fellowship, he travelled to art galleries, museums, performing arts centres, and community organisations in South Korea, Japan, US, Canada and the UK this year, researching current models for disability-access and inclusion programs.

In this talk, he will share an overview of his findings on best-practice cultural access programs, disability-led digital initiatives, and insights on how communities and organisations can become more inclusive.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion on opportunities for arts organisations in Western Australia to continue the conversation through the Arts and Cultural Access Consortium. This event is presented as part of Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery’s Inclusive Arts Week and in recognition of the UN International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD)
