Help us make Sydney WorldPride an accessible and inclusive event

Sydney WorldPride is currently developing our new Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP), to help ensure we produce an accessible and inclusive event for everyone.

We value the expertise and lived experience of members of our community. That’s why we’re seeking your input to help us shape our event and create a set of priorities through this survey.

The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete. We will ask you questions about your general observations around access and inclusion for arts and cultural events and your ideas for how we might put access and inclusion into practice for our event.

Our DIAP will be follow legislation and government policy guidelines and will be informed by internal and external consultation. These will ensure we gather knowledge, experiences and priorities from our community and other stakeholders with disability.

All survey responses are anonymous, and optional, and we encourage you to be honest with your feedback. If you feel you don’t know enough to comment on a particular section, please answer as best you can or leave that section blank.

Survey closes 5pm Thursday 20 January 2022.

We appreciate your feedback, which will help shape our new Plan and lead us to a more inclusive event.
