The National Arts and Disability Strategy is an initiative of the Meeting of Cultural Ministers which comprises Australian, state and territory government arts and cultural ministers.

The second triennial evaluation of the National Arts and Disability Strategy is being conducted to assess the extent to which initiatives and activities under the Strategy have been effective in supporting, encouraging and promoting access to, and participation in, arts and cultural activities by people with disability. This follows on from the inaugural National Arts and Disability Strategy Evaluation, which assessed outcomes under the Strategy for 2009–2012.

As part of the evaluation, we conducted a consultation survey to gather views about how effective the National Arts and Disability Strategy was for the period 2013–2015. The survey was open from 16 May to 17 June 2016. The survey sought feedback from artists, arts/cultural workers, representatives of arts disability organisations, representatives of arts or cultural organisations and representatives of disability organisations. The responses will be used to inform an evaluation report that will be submitted to the Meeting of Cultural Ministers.

The National Arts and Disability Strategy 2013–15 Evaluation issues paper provides an overview of the Evaluation and outlines issues the evaluation will consider.
