Arts Access Victoria in partnership with IAP2 Australia presented an evening where cultural attitudes about disability awareness were explored in the context of stakeholder engagement and diverse stakeholder participation.
Beyond Compliance – The Case for Disability Inclusion challenged participants to think about disability in new and different ways, to share experiences and make connections. Orchestrated around attending a cultural experience, participants from business, government and not for profit sectors were led through two Acts that provoked people to think beyond compliance to creative and imaginative responses to disability inclusion and universal access in their work.
Adding to the evening were the incisive images drawn by cartoonist Simon Kneebone who captured the reflections and ideas expressed throughout the evening, cleverly adding to the exhibition in the room. The facilitators’ lived experience of disability underwrote an enormous richness to the discussions, challenging perceptions of ‘disability’ and provoking new thinking. As one participant impressed “We all have the potential to be disabled temporarily or permanently. The definitions blur”.
