The findings from this evaluation are drawn from the analysis of the activity that has occurred across jurisdictions from October 2009 to December 2012 and stakeholder consultation that each jurisdiction undertook in early 2013. Stakeholder consultation included feedback from the national peak body for arts and disability and peak bodies in each state.
The National Arts and Disability Strategy Evaluation 2013–15 (the evaluation) looks at the current status of the arts and disability environment and the improvements made during 2013–15. It assesses the extent to which opportunities to use existing mechanisms, have been used to better support people with disability to participate in the arts. The evaluation also assesses how effective these initiatives have been in supporting inclusion in the arts, and how these activities support the artistic aspirations and creative engagement of people with a disability now and into the future.
