Access and Inclusion
- Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
- 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.
- 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.
- Relaxed performances are designed to create a safe and welcoming environment for children on the autism spectrum or other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities, along with their friends, carers and families.
This workshop, run by members of the MCA Youth Committee, is a rare opportunity to experience some of the magic of Genext, the MCA’s flagship event for 12–18 year olds, created by young people, for young people. Genext is a free, art-inspired event curated and run by the MCA’s Youth Committee five times a year.
Not Your Ordinary Teenager is an opportunity for young people and adults alike to meet MCA Youth Committee members, engage in conversation and challenge some of your assumptions about teenagers today. Drop in for as long as you like to start a conversation!

Since launching 12 years ago, Genext has provided an inclusive social space filled with creative workshops, live music, after-hours exhibition access and quite a bit of fairy floss to more than 20,000 young people from all across Sydney.
