Our Disability and Inclusion Action Plan

Our Disability and Inclusion Action Plan is a document that has been created in collaboration with our community. 

It is a plan to make sure Footscray Community Arts integrates accessible ways of working, developing and presenting art. 

This plan is about the future. It will help us organise ourselves to make sure all aspects of our operations and program are accessible.

Consultation and Co-Design  

To make this plan, we engaged over 133 people from our d/Deaf and Disabled community, as well as staff, Board members and other stakeholders. 

We did this by: 

  • Having access audits of how we work by disability-led organisation LOOM Arts Management and Arts Access Victoria. 
  • Welcoming feedback from community in an Open Day and anonymous survey. 
  • Having many conversations with d/Deaf and Disabled individuals and getting advice. 
  • Working with different parts of our team to understand what we can change. 

To ensure we deliver on this plan, we will continue consulting with d/Deaf and Disabled artists and community members.
