Access and Inclusion

  • Auslan Interpreted - Auslan interpreted events are for audiences who are Deaf and use Australian Sign Language (Auslan) as their primary means of communication. Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate what the speakers are saying or Auslan signing the text and dialogue live. Audiences requiring this service are seated in the section closest to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines.
  • Companion Card Acceptance - The Companion Card is for people with a significant permanent disability, who always need a companion to provide attendant care type support in order to participate at most available community venues and activities.
  • Hearing Loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
  • Wheelchair Accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.

Event Details

Artists and creatives help us understand what it is to be human. They connect us to our past and imagine our future. Their ideas invite us to reimagine ourselves through projects of healing and redesign. Discover how artists can help solve the many challenges that arise in a global pandemic.

This visionary session explores the changing conditions for arts and creativity, new social and community roles for the arts, and recent innovations in digital engagement. By telling stories from artists who are working in non-traditional ways and environments, What the Arts Did Next showcases the contributions that artists are making to social cohesion, innovation and healing.

Join leading interdisciplinary panellists to hear how creative practitioners are adapting their own roles and futures in a constantly changing world, and can forge relationships through which their work can be sustained. Some of the questions on the table include ‘how do we comprehend new beginnings when the game keeps changing and goalposts keep moving?’; ‘how can arts and creativity help address the mental health crisis?’; and ‘what is the role of arts and creativity in developing relationships across difference?’. Bring your own questions to add to the mix.

What the Arts Did Next offers a glimpse at the ways we can collectively restore and reimagine ourselves, and how we can collectively sustain, centralise and cherish creativity into the future.

Presented by Vivid Ideas in association with the Australia Council for the Arts.
