Arts Project Australia
We are a centre of excellence that supports artists with intellectual disabilities, promoting their work and advocating for inclusion within contemporary art practice.
Arts Project is a not-for-profit organisation, and rely on government funds, personal and philanthropic donations, and commissions from artwork sales to continue our work.
Arts Project Australia offers ongoing studio-based sessions staffed by practising artists who provide support and assistance to the artists. It also runs an ongoing exhibitions and leasing program through which their work is promoted locally, nationally and internationally across a wide variety of exhibiting contexts including public institutions and commercial galleries.
The ground floor gallery stages a full annual program of diverse exhibitions featuring work by artists from the studio as well as from the broader arts community. Visitors are most welcome to come and view the works on display.
