Maximising Your Audience: Making Your Work Accessible To Everyone
Date: Monday 29 May 2017
Where: Australia Council for the Arts
Admission: Free for SAMAG Members
Non-Members: $20, Student: $10 via Eventbrite
We’re all looking for ways to increase our reach and audiences that engage with our work. 1 in 5 Australians experience disability, with many people experiencing barriers to accessing or participating in artistic work. By removing those barriers and providing access to their work, artists and arts organisations have an opportunity to increase their reach, impact, audience size and revenue.
Run in partnership with Accessible Arts, this presentation will showcase organisations large and small who have pursued new audiences by continuing to make their work as open and accessible to everyone to engage with as possible.
Panellists will share the ways in which they’ve made their programs accessible, and what the outcomes, and also the challenges, have been along the way. They’ll share their tips and tricks that other artists and arts organisations can use to be more relevant to everyone in society and tap into new markets.
