Events and collaboration
CRUAT is committed to supporting communities of practice and regularly partners with other organisations to provide workshops, projects and events.
Public Art for an Inclusive Post-Disaster City?
This public seminar, held in April 2019 at Auckland City Council, convened interested scholars from the University of Auckland and interested research-user audiences from the Auckland City Council network and city centre groups. This event discussed the critical roles that public art have played, or may play, in establishing socially inclusive space in a post-disaster urban context.

Creativity in Corrections
CRUAT works in partnership with Arts Access Aotearoa to organise and host forum events for staff, volunteers and others using creative processes, including the arts, within Corrections settings. These events typically include practical workshops, discussion and presentations. CRUAT helped establish the University of Auckland Shakespeare Behind Bars Project in Nga Wha Prison in Northland.
These events aim to bring together artists, researchers, students and other practitioners who have an interest or involvement in disability arts and inclusive arts practice.
