The aim of the project is to increase opportunities for people with disability to participate in major and community events across NSW. Paul works directly with the event organiser and other government and non-government event planning agencies to coordinate strategies which are most conducive to increased participation. Some of these strategies include better transport and communication options, better disability awareness training for event staff and an increase in access considerations to events like accessible viewing areas, captioning and audio description. Paul has coordinated accessibility considerations for many events, including, Sydney NYE, Vivid Sydney, ANZAC Day, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade, Guest of State visits, Handa Opera on the Harbour, the International Fleet Review, Coates World Rally, the Homebush V8 Supercar event, Sydney Running Festival and the Sydney City to Surf.
