Summary In 2014, Arts Access Victoria, in partnership with the University of Melbourne, undertook a research project, with funding from the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, to investigate the creative case for inclusive arts practice as it relates to people with disability. Although significant academic research has been published internationally on the social and wellbeing benefits of arts participation for people with disability, very little rigorous research has yet been done to investigate the creative case for inclusion of artists with disability. In recent years, Victoria has emerged as a national leader in inclusive arts practice due to the work of Arts Access Victoria and other leaders in this field such as Arts Project Australia, Rawcus and Back to Back theatre companies. Through a study of Victorian arts companies producing work involving arts practitioners both with and without disabilities, the project focused on the strengths artists with disability can bring to the creative process by examining how inclusive arts practices can extend and redefine contemporary arts in exciting and innovative ways. Beyond Access sought to create an evidence base for the creative case for inclusive arts practice to support greater recognition for artists with a disability by transforming and extending notions of what art is and who produces it.
