PLATFORM from Eastern Riverina Arts makes it easier for people with disability to attend festivals in regional NSW. A mobile structure that is easy to install and remove, PLATFORM is now available for hire.
AN ACCESSIBLE SPACE TO CHILL OUT —an exciting new space for people of all ages and abilities. Our modified shipping container disguises a sanctuary of soft music, slow moving lights, interactive tactile objects, weighted blankets and lots of fluffy cushions, making PLATFORM the perfect place to engage the senses or just take some time out.
Throughout the course of an event, PLATFORM can be reserved as a quiet space for individual festival goers with disability and sensory related needs and their carers.
INCREASED ACCESSIBILITY EVENT-WIDE — The PLATFORM team can work with event organisers to find other ways to make events more accessible. Each festival is different, and we can work with you to identify and achieve accessibility improvements and projects.
SHOWCASING ARTISTS WITH DISABILITY — The PLATFORM chill out space has been designed by Bliss Cavanagh from Studio Bliss. Bliss is a sensory artist & designer, PhD researcher and a passionate advocate for mental health.
The team can also source for you visual artists, performers, and musicians with disability to entertain and challenge festival goers.
MARKETING — PLATFORM comes with a suite of digital marketing tools including logos, social media tiles and images, to help you promote your event.
ADD ON AN ACCESSIBLE DELUXE BATHROOM — EZY-DUN is a portable accessible deluxe bathroom for all people with disabilities you can add to your hiring of PLATFORM. It has an accessible ramp, accessible toilet with plenty of room for transfer and turning for wheelchair users, a hoist and change table so everyone can attend their needs with dignity.
