Celebrating 10 Years
ArtAbility® is an inspiring visual arts program run by ADEC that unites a range of talented artists of all ages, from a variety of cultures who are living with a disability.
Now in its 10th year, the ArtAbility® program is made up of art workshops that run all year and culminate into an end of year exhibition at Federation Square in December. ArtAbility® showcases
multiple artworks from over 100 artists of all ages who are living with a
disability or an experience of mental ill health and who come from culturally
diverse backgrounds across Victoria.
ArtAbility® provides the contributors the chance to be seen as “Artists” by their peers,
families and the community in general while promoting a message of ability
rather than disability, strength in diversity and personal empowerment through
engagement with the broader community.
Via the ArtAbility® program and exhibition, we look
to provide a platform on which these artists can express their culturally rich
personal journeys to some 40,000 members of the general public.
artists exhibit up to 200 works of art free from judgment of any disability
they may have. This exhibition also provides the artist a platform on which
they may have a louder voice in the greater community of Victoria.
