Tapatahi Accessibility Policy and Action Plan 2023 – 2028

This internal policy will guide Creative New Zealand’s work with and for Deaf and disabled artists, arts practitioners, turi Māori, tāngata whaikaha Māori and disability communities and ensure we are accessible and inclusive of all New Zealanders.

The purpose of the policy is to ensure that our services, funding, information and spaces:

  • can be accessed with ease and dignity
  • are non-discriminatory, fair, equitable, inclusive and safe.

The policy has been developed working with turi Māori, tāngata whaikaha Māori, Deaf and disabled artists, policy and disability-rights advocates and arts and disabled-led organisations.

The policy aims to action and promote the vision of the New Zealand Disability Strategy so that: 

‘Aotearoa New Zealand is a non-disabling society – a place where disabled people have an equal opportunity to achieve their goals and aspirations, and all of New Zealand works together to make this happen’.
