Presented by Eastern Riverina Arts PLATFORM Live is an online one-day festival featuring some of Australia’s boldest, funniest, creative, and most provocative artists and performers with disability.
Broadcasting live on 27 June, PLATFORM Live comprises four online sessions: PLATFORM Ideas, Screen, Words and Stage.
Curated by Hanna Cormick and Daniel Savage, who both identify as artists with disability, the festival will be supported by audio description, closed captions and Auslan.
The festival also aims to promote an initiative by Eastern Riverina Arts called PLATFORM, a multi-sensory mobile art installation space adapted from a 20-foot shipping container, now available for hire by festival and event organisers.
With one in five Australians identifying with disability, the PLATFORM space is an accessible experience for people of all ages and abilities who might otherwise find that attending a festival or event is beyond their reach.
PLATFORM Live is free to view at this link from 2pm, Saturday June 27.
