The arts should be for everyone. And, while many artists and audiences might assume that's always the case, people with disability often find otherwise. Presentation opportunities, representation in the industry and involvement in major arts companies can be lacking for performers with disability, which is why the Undercover Artist Festival is trying to do something about it.

Returning for 2021 — this time as part of Brisbane Festival — this inclusive event focuses on disability-led professional performing arts works across its four-day run. From Wednesday, September 15–Saturday, September 18, Queensland Theatre will play host to a range of theatre, dance, comedy, circus, music, cabaret and poetry shows, and celebrate the talented people behind them, all at an event that's accessible to all artists and audiences.

Here, diversity rules, both in terms of artists and in their efforts. There's a cabaret that blasts stereotypes about the autism spectrum, an aerial theatre show, a disability pride wall, workshops and more on the bill, so the festival certainly has the program to prove it.
