28 April 2020, Australia

In these extraordinary times we are living in, the disability community and those who work and participate in arts and culture are grappling with an uncertain future both professionally and personally. COVID-19 has drastically impacted everyone’s social lives forcing us to self-quarantine and to rely on our emails, social media and video conferencing platforms such as Zoom, Facetime and Skype to connect with others. Whilst many of us have benefitted from technology to keep us connected with family, friends and colleagues, there are still barriers when it comes to how accessible these platforms are for people with disability.
