Feature topic: Designing events for inclusion
One in five people in Australia have a disability. These disabilities take a variety of forms including physical; cognitive; developmental delay/intellectual disability; acquired brain injury; mental health conditions; and sensory disability. To assist event managers in designing their events in ways that make them as inclusive as possible, there are a number of free online guides. Below are listed selected publications that we have found particularly useful:
•Creating Inclusive and Accessible Events: All Abilities Queensland
•Accessible and inclusive community events toolkit – Inclusive SA
•Accessible Events: A Guide for Meeting and Event Organisers
•Accessibility in Public Events and Concerts: Checklist
•Inclusive and Accessible Event Guidelines: City of Sydney
•Event Accessibility Guidelines – Brisbane City Council
•Accessibility in the Australian Events Industry (video)
About Event Training Australia
Event Training Australia (ETA) has its origins in the recently closed Australian Event Award-winning Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM), University of Technology, Sydney.
ETA was established to continue, and build upon, ACEM’s event training and education legacy. As such, ETA draws on over 20 years of experience in the development of innovative practice-based education and training programs in the event management field. These programs span one-day workshops to Masters level university courses. ETA’s understanding of ‘best practice’ event management is further reflected in its founder’s (Dr Rob Harris) co-authoring of the widely used texts and handbooks – Festival and Special Event Management, Event Management and the Regional Event Management Handbook.
