What is an access doc?

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 emaple, to let them know what you need them to facilitate to make sure you have equal access to work.

Access Docs for Artists is a website resource created by Leah Clements, Alice Hattrick and Lizzy Rose in 2018. The website contains examples, tips and resources for creating your very own access doc that you can share with artists organisations.
