Publication Type:


This guide examines the physical and attitudinal barriers that can prevent access to the arts for people who have lived experience of mental illness, or of physical, sensory, neurological or learning disability.
This is the second edition of Arts For All, building on the first edition published in 2009. Arts For All is based on Arts Access Aotearoa’s core belief that everyone in New Zealand should be able to take part in the arts as both creators and audiences, whatever their circumstances.

Although disabled people are the focus of this guide, it is aimed at artists and arts marketers, arts organisations, touring companies, festivals, venues, galleries and museums – in fact, anyone in the arts and cultural sectors wanting to reach a wider and more diverse section of New Zealand society. It outlines the benefits of marketing the arts to disabled people, and includes both practical and longer-term steps for providing access.
