At Riverside Theatres we pride ourselves in our leadership in the arts when it comes to access inclusion. We continue to forge ahead through the implementation our Access strategy, developed through talking to our community of artists, audiences and supporters.
Our platform is anchored in 3 pillars, starting with participation and the opportunity for people with disability to directly participate in performing arts activities and make artistic works. We also support art form development and we have a commitment to programming professional productions and films made by or including artists with disability. While performers are the soul of the performing arts, audiences are the heart and we are committed to building our relationship and ensuring access to the artistic products people want to see.
Riverside Theatre’s Beyond the Square drama program offers participants creative outlets, personal and social exploration, and skills development. Riverside’s ongoing drama workshop is one of the longest running and largest of its kind in Sydney.
We continue to grow the depth and breadth of our drama workshops, which are the foundation for exploring the creative process in the performing arts, and attract highly skilled artists as teachers, facilitators and directors.
The program is grounded in a sense of community, a place where people feel they belong and have a say. The program supports existing and new social networks.
