Inclusive Events Program

Did you know that people with disabilities represent a considerable proportion of your potential customer base? Over four million Australians – around 19% of our population – have a physical, intellectual or other disability. This figure can at times increase to about 35% of the population if you include people with temporary disabilities.

People will choose to participate in festivals and events depending on the ease of access, quality and range of activities available to them.

What is an Inclusive Event?

An Inclusive Event is an event that includes considerations of people with disability based on:

• Event planning.
• Ease of access to the festival/event.
• Ease of movement around the festival/event.
• Signage.
• Toilets and other facilities.
• Promoting improved access to patrons.

Why become an Inclusive Event?

By becoming an Inclusive Event you can:

• Attract new participants.
• Improve services to all participants.
• Actively reduce discrimination.

The Events and Promotions team have a variety of items available to improve access to events.

These items include, but are not limited to:

  • Accessible portable toilet
  • Portable ramps
