Accessible Marketing is the practice of helping as many people as possible receive your marketing and media communications, including people with disabilities.
By improving you knowledge and understanding of Accesible Marketing, you are enhancing “Access” to key information. By offering this clarity for people with disabilities to receive your communications effectively you are developing equal opportunity for all to attend your arts events.

About Access Arts Hub
The Access Arts Hub is a consortium of individuals and organisations with a shared agenda to make arts more accessible and appealing for persons with disabilities. The Hub’s origin stems from initial training provided by Kirsty Hoyle of Include Arts organised by the Esplanade and SRT supported by the British Council in February 2018. The Hub wants to develop better Access to the Arts in Singapore by working with a diverse membership base, to make informed changes to support all communities to be nourished and entertained by the Arts.
