Papers & Conversations from 2006 -

Awakenings Arts Festival

The Awakenings festival is much more than Australia's only regional disability arts
festival! This dynamic, inclusive 10 day event draws performers and participants from
around Australia to the welcoming community of Horsham for ten days in Western
Victoria every October.

The festival welcomes and encompasses all levels of performance experience from
grass roots to professional, featuring performing and visual arts that showcase the
work of artists with disabilities.


Making the Journey: arts and disability in Australia
Making the Journey is about arts activities and people with disabilities. It offers 12 case
studies as examples of approaches, issues and achievements in the Australian field of
art and disability in recent years.

Access all areas: guidelines for marketing the arts to people with disabilities
For most people, the decision to be exposed to the experience of an arts event is a
simple one. You go, because you choose to go. Providing that choice to people with
disabilities is the issue of Access all areas. This guide is intended to be practical,
covering actions which are within reach of arts organisations, especially marketing
officers and their departments. How to identify this audience, how to reach them and
how to provide what they want is the key advice contained in Access all areas.

Wellbeing through Community Arts Participation
