Career Advancement

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.


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.

Artist Residencies

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.

Leadership Development

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.

Advance Your Career Series

In 2023, we will be extending our commitment to the professional development of artists and arts workers who are d/Deaf or with disability through Advance Your Career sessions. These expert workshops will cover various practical insightful topics to support the development professional knowledge, skills and networks.

In this online workshop, an Arts Law Solicitor will discuss your rights as an artist. Discover how to protect your work, where to get help if you need it and what happens when you make art with other artists. This session uses practical examples, case studies from artists’ experiences and hypothetical scenarios to help artists understand copyright, intellectual property and other relevant legal issues.
