Radical Access

Radical Access launched in full in 2022, beginning a ten-year social change project in partnership with Arts Access Victoria that imagines a radical version of best practice accessibility for the independent arts sector and moves the conversation beyond the provision of access services into cultural equity.

Radical Access is a provocation for change and a call for accelerated action. We’re talking commissioning bold new work by d/Deaf and Disabled artists, providing R&D opportunities for artists who identify as d/Deaf or Disabled, running a series of workshops, masterclasses, mentorships and of course, employment opportunities for d/Deaf and Disabled artworkers. All of this with the aim to significantly increase access and inclusion for d/Deaf and Disabled artists across the independent arts sector.

d/Deaf and Disabled artists are vital contributors to Australia’s arts and culture, with unique perspectives on lived experiences that challenge and redefine aesthetics. But even still, artists with disability earn less than half the income of their non-disabled colleagues. Radical Access seeks to close that gap and have real impact on the lives and careers of all independent artists, artworkers and audiences.


The first phase (2022-2025) of Radical Access includes:

  • Creating structures and resources to support artists who are d/Deaf or Disabled to be the drivers of change
  • Increasing the visibility of d/Deaf or Disabled artists into mainstream cultural life
  • Developing empowered, skilled and knowledgeable artists, arts workers and participants
  • Offering year-round opportunities for d/Deaf and Disabled artists to develop and present their work

Radical Access Conversations:

This is the first event under the Radical Access program. Watch the online discussion here, which is less of a Q&A and more of a Q&Q as we set our sights on the next decade of striving towards universal access in the arts.

This panel includes Caroline Bowditch (CEO of Arts Access Victoria), Carly Findlay (Access Advisor at Melbourne Fringe), Madeleine Little (Director of Undercover Artist Festival) and Joshua Pether (independent artist), and they  deliver industry-leading insights on the future of access and inclusion in the arts.
