We run a number of not-for-profit events including workshops, exhibitions and festivals for people with disabilities as well as those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (and for the wider community to attend). These events are structured to allow artists, stallholders and those running workshops to keep all profits in order to have community access, get brand exposure, gain confidence, find purpose and build business and work skills. We sell art and craft items made by people with disabilities through our website with all profits going back to the artist/creator.

Did you know that the process of creating, painting and making is often more beneficial and more important for many than creating a ‘masterpiece’. The advantage of simply ‘creating’ gives a voice to experiences and feelings not easily expressed in words, helps to relax and de-stress, helps to develop self-awareness and self-esteem, helps to develop social skills and foster better communication, helps to manage challenging behaviours and/or symptoms, helps solve problems by looking with a different perspective.
Morning, after school and holiday programs are available for children and adults.
