The La Mama Access Program aims to engage the participation of artists and community members who face challenges in accessing arts and cultural opportunities.
As part of our commitment to improving La Mama’s accessibility, we are currently implementing a Disability Action Plan to welcome all audiences.
For this purpose, La Mama is dedicated to implementing, maintaining and reviewing its Action Plan in order to create positive discrimination for patrons with a disability and encourage their ongoing involvement in the arts.
This Disability Action Plan has prioritised strategies that are realistic and achievable with the current resources and in the actual operating environment, while producing the greatest benefits for the everyday experience of patrons and artists with disability as well as staff members.
La Mama is focusing upon 4 key strategy areas:
1. Increase participation of people with disability through better access to La Mama.
2. Reduce barriers to persons with disability obtaining and maintaining artistic opportunities and employment.
3. Create audience development by making performances inclusive and accessible.
4. Lead changes in attitudes and practices that will enhance access for all.
The initiatives contained in this Action Plan will deliver benefits for all patrons and artists as well as demonstrate to the community that improving access is an ongoing organisational commitment for La Mama Theatre.
