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.

This year’s national conference will be held online. Arts Access Australia strives to meet all access requests requested by event attendees. Program sessions will include Auslan-interpreting, live captioning and audio description. Recordings and transcripts of programmed sessions will be available to all Meeting Place 2020 ticket-holders where possible. Please note that some sessions may not be recorded for copyright and privacy reasons.

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 2020 (doc, 165 KB)

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

Privacy – I will not take video screenshots or screenshots/copies of text from chat conversations.
