Meeting Place strives to create a space that is universally accessible.

Meeting Place host Arts Access Australia promotes a human rights approach to access and inclusion and is committed to creating a space that respects rights and responsibilities. We believe that there is a shared responsibility for creating access and inclusion, and this starts with acknowledging our personal rights and responsibilities and respecting the rights and responsibilities of others.

The first two days of this year’s national forum will be held online. The final day of the forum will be an in-person only event, with limited tickets available.

Arts Access Australia strives to meet all access requests requested by event attendees. Program sessions will include Auslan-interpreting, live captioning and audio descriptions. Recordings and transcripts of programmed sessions will be available to all Meeting Place 2021 ticket-holders where possible. Please note that the Code of Conduct session will not be recorded.

The following Charter of Rights & Responsibilities has been created to guide participation in our online event. Please review the Charter prior to attending Meeting Place. The Charter is also available for download as a word doc: Charter of Rights & Responsibilities 2021 (doc, 53 KB)

Safety – I will help create a safe, constructive and harassment-free space for everybody.

Freedom of Opinion – I will respect the views and opinions of others and allow them the time and space in which to share them.

Mindfulness – I will be considerate in what I do and say, and mindful of the effect that I might have on other people.

Privacy –  I will not take photos or videos of others without their permission, or post them on Facebook, Twitter and other online media.
