Online Learning

Access and inclusion training for the arts

For arts organisations and freelancers

Looking to develop your knowledge about access and inclusion? Our four-part digital training series will give you the tools to train yourself and your team, from front of house staff to senior management and board members.

These resources offer an opportunity to listen in on a conversation between Disabled artists, in order to understand more about access and inclusion from real-world experiences. What they are not is a quick-fix, one-stop-shop of understanding everything to do with disability in the arts... to be honest, there's no such thing!

Instead this course will ignite curiosity and support you and your staff to build your understanding of accessibility in practice via videos and digital resource packs.

When you book you are given access to the resources for 3 months. This means you can plan the training around your calendar and do it at a pace that suits you.

Modules

There are four modules in the online learning course, each with a video and accompanying digital resource pack:

How do we talk about it? A look at the tricky topic of language and how not to be afraid of 'getting it wrong'.

The Basics A conversation about the building blocks of inclusion and access, introducing different ways of thinking about disability and how to use that to be more inclusive.

Working with Disabled people A discussion around how to approach working with Disabled artists in an inclusive way, as well as accessibility in the workplace.

Meaningful Partnerships An insight into the ways you can build meaningful partnerships, with access at the heart, for long-term impact.

The online learning resource also includes an introductory document for staff and the person leading on the training, giving advice on how to get the most out of it.

“As well as the content being useful and thought provoking - will also take away the management and coordination of the event, which was a masterclass for a friendly digital event.”
