2024 Createability Program

2024 Createability Internships Announced

Congratulations to the 10 talented practitioners with disability will soon embark on exciting professional development opportunities in the creative industries, following their selection for the NSW Government’s 2024 Createability Internship Program.

This year’s successful cohort will contribute their valuable skills and make connections with some of the sector’s leading screen and performing arts organisations, to advance their careers through hands-on roles.

Now in its third year, the Createability Internship Program is proving that well-supported internships lead to ongoing change and improved employment opportunities for arts workers with disability or who are d/Deaf. The 10 internships provide professional development opportunities for creatives, while supporting host organisations to create accessible pathways to employment, training and support for people with disability.

The Createability interns and host organisations for 2024 are:

Aaron Gold – Sydney Theatre Company
Bianca Yeung – Lingo Pictures
Holly-Jane Cohle – Erth Visual & Physical Theatre
James Weaver – Performance Space
Jo Roberts – Tantrum Youth Arts
Kate Teal-Spicer – ABC Compass
Kyle Goldfinch – SBS Special Broadcasting Service
Louis Walker – Erth Visual & Physical Theatre
Sarah Carrol – Outloud
Sufiya Naqvi – ABC Children’s and Family team

The outcomes of this innovative internship program have been profound. It has been a catalyst for career advancement for many creative practitioners with a disability or who are d/Deaf, and many feel a sense of belonging and appreciation for their abilities, experience and creative skills.

The Createability Internship Program is delivered through Create NSW and Screen NSW, in partnership with Accessible Arts.
