Disability Inclusion Action Plan
MoAD plays a significant role in enriching understanding and appreciation of Australia’s political legacy and the intrinsic value of democracy. A key principle of democracy is the right of all people to civic engagement and participation. MoAD’s Disability Action Inclusion Plan 2021–2024 reflects this important right and our commitment to improve accessibility and inclusion through exhibitions, public programs, museum spaces, facilities and digital offerings that welcome everyone.
Working with Accessible Arts, and building on earlier improvements, MoAD has identified a number of key areas where we can create more inclusive and accessible museum experiences while balancing our heritage management responsibilities.
Our areas of focus will include enhancements to:
- building access and signage and wayfinding
- experience design and promotion
- our website and publications
- use of support technologies and materials
- and expanding staff and volunteer Disability Confidence training.
The implementation of MoAD’s DIAP 2021–2024 will be carefully monitored via consultation with our Disability Working Group and engagement with our onsite and online visitors.
Progress will be reviewed annually to ensure our DIAP remains effective and fit for purpose. Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to the development of this plan, and we look forward to continuing collaboration to successfully implement it over the coming years.
