Art for Everyone: an inclusive practice guide

Art for Everyone: Approaches to Inclusive Practice in Arts and Mental Health is a workbook for people and organisations who wish to develop inclusive art programs in a meaningful and respectful way. 

Art for Everyone offers ideas and resources to help you design projects that engage artists and people with disability, mental health issues and who are Deaf. 

In researching and writing this publication, we have drawn on models that have delivered outstanding results for and with people with mental health issues. The practices that we highlight cross the domains of mental health and disability, as the people who participate in these programs may identify with both.

Our aim is to to build confidence and capacity within the community to develop and deliver cultural programs that are accessible and inclusive to all community members, but particularly people with disability, mental health issues and who are Deaf.


This publication is an outcome of the Connecting the Dots Project, delivered by Arts Access Victoria with the support of Creative Victoria and the Department of Health and Human Services.
