IGNITE: Social aims to extend the cultural participation of IGNITE: Alternative Arts Academy participants and improve their access and inclusion in the arts as makers and viewers. IGNITE: Social draws on the skills, interests and experiences of all to create a curated series of social and creative exchanges that introduce participants to the Canberra arts and cultural sector, including shared gallery visits, live music and theatre experiences. IGNITE: Social aims to provide supported access and first-hand experience, build awareness and confidence, and share information of existing networks and the wider arts community.
