Willing & Able - A Critical Thinkers Forum

Fri 26 Jul

Join artists and support workers from Artel Studio, ARC Disability Services and Arts Project Australia in an afternoon of discussion over the often tricky questions surrounding disability arts.

What do artists with disabilities need - and what could that look like if we had it? There are models all over Australia of studio and exhibition spaces, support services and other programs that integrate artists with disabilities into the wider arts community. What works? And when it doesn’t work, why not?

In this forum, we confront the challenges faced by artists with disabilities and the workers who support them. As Australia roles out the NDIS, and Cairns Regional Council drafts its first Arts and Disability Strategy, now is the time to think of better ways and stake out a better future. Bookings essential.

View the associated exhibition, Reasonable & Necessary, at Tanks from 26 July (launch) until Sunday 18 August.

An Auslan Interpreted Event.
