Senator Patricia Bovey Speech: Beyond Barriers: Arts Accessibility

Everybody has the right of access to the arts – artists in their practice and audiences in their participation and enjoyment. Bill C-81, the Federal Accessibility Act, moved Canada’s accessibility needle forward, but visible and invisible challenges continue to abound for both creators and viewers. Artists inspire. Deaf and disabled artists spark the spirit within many by pioneering new pathways in how they create and how we see and understand. What has to be done to ensure accessibility for and to their work? Pat Bovey’s lecture will celebrate positive action and the transformative power of artistic achievement.
