We’re here to empower the creativity and careers of arts practitioners with disability right across NSW. We do this by providing a range of professional development programs for both artists and arts workers.
Artist residencies provide an important and valuable opportunity for artists with disability to develop their creative and professional practice. We partner with various cultural organisations to provide residency programs in Sydney and regional NSW.
- The Writer’s Space Varuna Fellowships Initiative
- Accessible Arts and Bundanon Trust Artist-in-Residence Program
People with disability are underrepresented in leadership positions within the arts and cultural sector. We provide opportunities for people with disability to develop the knowledge, skills and networks they need to become creative industry leaders such artistic directors, senior arts administrators and board/committee members.
We partner with leading artists and arts organisations to provide on-the-job opportunities for artists and arts workers with disability to improve their knowledge, skills and networks by undertaking short-term creative and professional placements.
Every year we present a range of live and online workshops to assist artists and arts workers with disability to develop their professional knowledge, skills and networks.
