Undercover Artist was developed by Access Arts in consultation with artists experiencing disability, and the arts workers who work with them.
They highlighted the need for more access; access to development, access to performance opportunities, access to funding, access to performance venues and performances. At Undercover Artist, each project and program we undertake is focused on improving access to the arts for everyone.
Undercover Artist focuses on performing artists with disability or who are d/Deaf – each with their own unique story to tell – by harnessing their ability and providing opportunity to upskill, and develop their artistic talent.
At Undercover Artist Festival 2021, we introduced three ‘tracks’ in our programming:
Each track has been designed to improve access to the arts for artists with disability or who are d/Deaf. You will see these track icons used across our website to define the program type, and the opportunity it represents.
