Melbourne’s new major disability arts festival Alter State will be broadcast online

The first ever Alter State will be broadcast online from 12 September to 9 October via Arts Centre Melbourne’s website.

Viewers from around the world can access Rodney Bell’s (Ngati Maniapoto) show Meremere. This award-winning work will be available on demand from 10 October to 31 October.

There will be an online workshop with Come And Make Performance (CAMP) and access to incredible films with Flaunt from The Other Film Festival which will feature on the Australian Centre for Moving Image’s digital platform Cinema 3.

The community can connect with Curated Conversations from Australian Performing Arts Market, Check Point from Arts Access Victoria as well as collaborations with YIRRAMBOI Festival and the Arts Wellbeing Collective.

Fiona Tuomy, Arts Access Victoria’s Manager of Digital Innovation:

It is exciting to have such a bespoke and accessible range of online events for Alter State. The commitment to providing these digital offerings means that as many people as possible can be a part of the festival, regardless of where they live, their personal situations and scheduling preferences.

The partnership with Arts Access Victoria ensures Arts Centre Melbourne will continue to grow as an accessible and inclusive place for everybody.

During the pandemic, there was a wave of companies and organisations moving into the digital space with some doing it better than others. Arts Centre Melbourne has shown an honest and considered approach to introducing digital offerings and Arts Access Victoria’s role has centred the value and importance of Deaf and Disabled artists and audiences.

We hope this is experienced when audiences explore the incredible artistic offerings available across Alter State’s digital program.
