Information on writing an access document for disabled artists
what is an access doc?
This page explains what an access doc is and how it can be used
An access doc, or access ‘rider’ is a document that outlines your disability access needs. You might make one so that you can give it to galleries/institutions/organisations when you start working with them on a project, such as a gallery you’re doing a show at for example, to let them know what you need them to facilitate to make sure you have equal access to work.
You might want to make one if you are an artist or art worker and identify as sick/crip/disabled and have found that you have encountered barriers in your working relationships or ability to take on opportunities because of your disability.
We’ve made everything here from our own positions as disabled artists and writers, but we hope this site might be useful for other kinds of art workers too.
