Welcome to our Access and Inclusion Program for Sculpture by Sea

Sculpture by the Sea aims to engender a greater sense of community, introduce the public to a broad spectrum of sculpture, and support emerging and established national and international artists.

The Access and Inclusion program is in continual development and review to ensure our free to the public exhibitions are inclusive and positively encourage the participation of people with diverse abilities of all ages to enjoy and experience sculpture in a beautiful setting. The program supports the public profile of people with disability and their active role as audience members.

The program cultivates partnerships with schools, individuals, and organisations that represent people with disability.
