Message from our Chief Executive Officer

This month marks my one-year anniversary as CEO of Arts Access Victoria and what a year it’s been! A year of observing the artistic landscape that surrounds us, meeting lots of great people and imagining what the future could be. Now it is time to start ‘the doing’ and you have an essential role to play in that. Throughout August, I will be leading a series of consultations where I want to find out from you:

  • What we’re doing well
  • What we could be doing better
  • What we could be doing in the future

It is crucial to us as an organisation, that we stay relevant to artists, the disability community, the creative industry and wider community. Your voice and insights are essential to us gaining this wisdom.

Consultation sessions will be held at the AAV offices, 22 Bank St, South Melbourne on:

  • Tuesday 6 August, 6.00 pm - 8.00 pm
  • Monday 12 August, 11.00 am - 1.00 pm
  • Wednesday 14 August, 2.00 pm - 4.00 pm
  • Tuesday 27 August, 4.00 pm - 6.00 pm

There are 15 places for each session, so please let us know which session you want to attend and your access and dietary requirements at

All sessions will be Auslan interpreted. We can cover travel costs and you are also welcome to join any of these sessions via Zoom.

I very much look forward to meeting up with you in August.

Warmest regards,

Caroline Bowditch
