Arts Access Australia is dedicated to broadening understanding and improving skills and access in the field of disability and the arts. The annual Meeting Place gathering supports cultural exchange between outstanding national and international artists with disability, along with the WA arts and disability community.

Meeting Place is structured to provide a platform for learning, discussion and debate on important issues that impact upon artists, arts workers and leaders with disability, as well as those with an interest in the sector.

There will also be a series of presentations and panel discussions on topics such as the arts and mental health, formal training pathways for people with disability in the arts, and the impact of the NDIS on arts participation by people with disability.
