Tasmanian Arts and Disability Sector Gathering

In early 2019, Salamanca Arts Centre and DADAA formed a five year partnership focused on Arts and Disability practice, sector development and production. The partnership has been formed around the question that they want to explore across the partnership activity:

What does Disability led practice really look like?

To ensure that this long-term partnership hits the ground, in the right way the teamsSalamanca Arts Centre and DADAA are really keen to hear directly from you:

  • What are the big issues for Tasmanian Arts and Disability over the next five years that you think we should be focused upon?
  • What resources and capacity for Arts and Disability, does Tasmania need?
  • Where to feel we should apply the projects’ resources?
  • Who in Tasmanian Arts and Disability should the project’s focus be upon?

Partnership Values

  • Disability Arts practice leads our collaboration and partnership activity
  • Artists with disability and the Artistic workforces around them sit at the core of our partnership
  • Apply our partnership resources as generative scaffolds, too inclusively connect our sector.
  • Holding the Disability Arts sectors in TAS and WA together 

Who’s it For?

Tasmanian Artists with Disabilities, Tasmanian Arts, CACD and  Arts and Disability sector, Local Governments supporting Arts and Disability programs, Artsworkers working in Arts and Disability, Arts and Disability organisations’ Board Members.
