Update on the National Arts and Disability Strategy: In October 2019, the Meeting of Cultural Ministers agreed to explore opportunities for closer alignment of the National Arts and Disability Strategy with the National Disability Strategy, consistent with feedback received from the sector. The next phase of targeted consultations on the National Disability Strategy was delayed due to COVID-19, which has necessarily caused delays to the renewal of the National Arts and Disability Strategy. The Department of Social Services commenced this next phase of consultations on the National Disability Strategy in July 2020.

Along with the 2018 consultation on the National Arts and Disability Strategy, the outcomes of the consultation on the National Disability Strategy will help inform a renewed National Arts and Disability Strategy. There will be a second phase of targeted consultation with arts and disability stakeholders on this document when it is ready, currently expected to be in the first half of 2021.
