Arts Access Australia (AAA) 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 responsibility of others.

Following is an outline of the access available at Meeting Place 2021, please advise AAA of your access requirements on registration or contact one of our friendly AAA staff at info@artsaccessaustralia.org to discuss your individual requirements
