Many venues, festivals, events, musicians, promoters and agents are aware of the need to make gigs more accessible and inclusive, to ensure we can reach a wider audience and include a wider range of artists. If this is new for you, knowing where to start and how to go about this can be overwhelming. 1 in 5 Australians live with disability, a huge proportion of our population, and there are a whole range of different access barriers and solutions that we need to consider to ensure we build an inclusive music industry.

Being accessible starts online. Access to information is critical for some people to make informed decisions about whether an event is going to be accessible for them to attend.

As part of the Music Venues Project, Music Victoria is providing free training in online accessibility to venues and other music industry stakeholders to show you how to make your digital content, from your website to your social media channels, accessible to everyone in the community.

This masterclass will share tips and tricks on digital accessibility and provide you with information and resources to go away and make immediate improvements to your online presence.

Presented by disabled musician and access consultant Morwenna Collett, this online session was delivered via Zoom in two parts and was open for anyone willing to to attend.

Music Victoria acknowledges the Traditional Owners, the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation, on whose unceded land we advocate, support and celebrate on. We pay our deep respects to Elders past and present, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and communities. We acknowledge them as the first artists, the first musicians, and the first creators of culture. We deeply respect the role that music and songlines play in the continuation of their culture for the past 60,000+ years.
