The project is an exciting mix of interactive events and exhibitions aimed at including people of all abilities, especially those with high support needs, to take part in creative activities within their local community.

Arts centre project officer Sarah Toohey said the line-up of artists involved was exciting with street artists Dan Duggan and Bruno Booth, who specialised in large scale murals and urban design developments, kicking off the workshops.

Other artist-led workshops will be available in August including experimental drawing with Teelah George and arts projects with Nicole Andrijevic, who creates miniature worlds with modelled sugar fondant.

Free disability awareness and engagement sessions for arts workers and project partners will commence this month and run until May 2016.

The workshops are free for people with disabilities, and their support person, or at a reduced rate for others.
