Arts Accessibility Workshops

AA1

Participants experienced the daily scenarios of a disabled person via role-play games

The Academy signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) to promote arts development, education and arts accessibility. To advocate arts accessibility to students of the Academy and the arts practitioners, the Academy partnered with ADAHK to organise two well-received workshops on 25 September and 30 October 2019. Not only did the participating students, staff and guests learnt simple phrases of sign language, they also laid their hands on tangible representation of art pieces and experienced the daily scenarios of a disabled person via role-play games. Through these workshops, participants acquired essential understanding of arts accessibility and its requirement.
