Accessible Arts 'Removing the Obstacles' report explores disability access to heritage buildings

Published

A full report and the Executive Summary resulting from Accessible Arts’ Removing the Obstacles research project is now available.

Developed with arts organisations in mind, the report explores broad issues regarding the provision and improvement of access for people with disability to heritage listed buildings.

Removing the Obstacles began in 2007, when Accessible Arts, in partnership with Arts Access Australia, Arts Law Centre of Australia and UTS Shopfront sought to investigate whether heritage laws limit the capacity of arts organisations to provide physical access for people with disability and if there is a need for law reform.

The research involved a content analysis of state, national and international legislation, policy and other related resources regarding disability access and heritage, including the Disability (Access to Premises — Buildings) Standards 2010. Click here to visit Accessible Arts.
