Access and inclusion training for the arts

These resources offer a unique opportunity to listen in on a conversation between Disabled artists, in order to understand more about access and inclusion from real-world experiences.

For arts organisations

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.

This isn't 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 with individual VIP log-ins for your team. This means you can plan the training around your calendar and do it at a pace that suits you.

Our online training makes it easy to train your whole team without having to find a time that suits everyone's diary

Do you want to upskill in access and inclusion? Our four-part digital training series will give you the opportunity to build your understanding of accessibility in practice via videos and digital resource packs.

This training will help you engage with accessibility in different situations and with different organisations and projects. Whether you're an artist or a consultant you'll find useful tips and helpful examples of inclusive practice in action to use in your work.

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 freelancers or for organisation 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.”
