Help make art part of everyone's life. Become an Access Champion and join us in creating a more equitable future for artists and audiences.

At Utp we are committed to ensuring that the work we make and present is accessible to all people regardless of ability, cultural background, gender identity, sexuality, or socio-economic circumstance.

Access Champions support our vision to be a leader in access, inclusion and equity in the arts through investment in direct actions and initiatives.

Your donation could provide the following impact:

  • $1000 allows us to offer 40 free tickets to people experiencing financial barriers to access
  • $1500 funds one tactile tour, relaxed performance or Auslan interpreted show per season
  • $3000 generates resources including accessibility packs and show information in community languages

Being a proud disability-led organisation, Utp's commitment to accessibility amplifies this impact through:

  • Employing artists with lived experience of all forms of diversity
  • Partnering with like-minded organisations in the arts, community services and education sectors to share resources and knowledge, and to open new pathways to access
  • Investing in on-going staff training and development in the areas of access for people living with disability, gender awareness, and mental health first aid, so that our team has the skills and sensibilities to foster safe spaces for artists, audiences and communities
