Disability sector within arts reviewed
The State Government is hoping to improve access and participation in the cultural arts for people with disabilities and began consultations in Broome earlier this month.
The National Arts and Disabilities Strategy will be renewed next year and consultation was opened last month to garner community feedback.
Founder of 30 Foot Drop and public speaker Ben Aldridge, who last month plunged down the Central Park building on St George’s Terrace to raise money for a Kalgoorlie family, said clearer information was vital.
A quadriplegic for 10 years now, Mr Aldridge knows only too well the challenges faced in every day life.
Face-to-face consultation began on October 12 at the Broome Civic Centre.
The public is encouraged to give feedback for the strategy through arts.gov.au/mcm.
