Beyond Access, an Arts Access Victoria research project

Beyond Access, an Arts Access Victoria research project, was delivered in 2014 in
partnership with the University of Melbourne and with funding from the Lord Mayor’s
Charitable Foundation. The research sought to create an evidence base for the creative
case for inclusive arts practice to support greater recognition for artists with a disability by
transforming and extending notions of what art is, who makes it and how it is made.
The resources produced through the research are now available for download from the AAV
They are:
An overview of the Beyond Access research project and summary of the research
A critical review of disability arts literature and activity in the UK, US and Australia
