Arts Access Aotearoa
Arts Access Aotearoa is a national Charitable Trust that supports arts organisations and venues to increase their accessibility, builds the capability and leadership skills of grass-roots community organisations providing arts opportunities to people with a disability, raises public awareness about access to the arts and provides a national information service. It is also the lead organisation advocating for the arts to be used as a rehabilitation tool for prisoners.
Arts Access Aotearoa’s key stakeholders are people with physical, sensory or intellectual impairments; individuals and organisations in the community and professional arts sectors; and mental health service users. Arts Access Aotearoa makes a difference for the 1.1 million people in New Zealand who identify as having a disability.
