Call for Papers 

EXTENDED to 20 April

Accessible Arts has extended its call for papers, presentations or workshops for presentation at the 2016 Arts Activated conference, ‘Pathways to Practice’, 20 and 21 September at Carriageworks, Sydney Australia. 

We strongly encourage proposals from artists and practitioners with unique and innovative cultural perspectives, from rural and remote areas, representing sexual diversity and the LGBTQIA community, from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds and young and emerging groups and demographics.

Proposals must address the 2016 conference theme ‘Pathways to Practice’ which will explore the varied paths that artists with disability take in developing their practice during their career and how organisations are fostering pathways for artists and audiences with disability.

The conference will be split into two streams ‘Artist Pathways’ and ‘Organisational Pathways’; presenters may choose which stream and topic their presentation best fits.

Submissions are online through SmartyGrants and close midnight 12am AEDT Wednesday 20 April 2016. Click here to access SmartyGrants.
