Reasonable and Necessary - thinking big!

Arts Access Australia (AAA) have partnered with Access2Arts in SA to create 'Reasonable and Necessary', a project aimed at encouraging people to think big about their goals and their futures, and providing a fun and creative way for people to share these goals with planning teams at the NDIS.


About Reasonable and Necessary

With a history of experiencing systemic disadvantage, many people with disability haven’t had aspirations beyond the desire to live an ordinary life. With the role out of the NDIS, it is time to start thinking about a new future.

Reasonable and Necessary has been designed as a participatory arts project to provide people with disability that are eligible for the NDIS the encouragement they need to confidently undertake NDIS planning Step 1 – ‘Think about your needs and goals.’

By using the arts, we can share powerful stories, think differently, and use our imaginations to see a future that does not yet exist.

Through participating, people with disability can contribute their aspirations of what they consider ‘reasonable and necessary’ in their lives and share the ownership of the project.

‘You see things; and say, Why? But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’ 

George Bernard Shaw
