Are you an artist with a disability or are interested in arts and creativity?

ArtLife is a program for people with disability who have an interest in art and creativity, as well as for emerging and established artists. Through ArtLife, we facilitate opportunities for people with disability to work towards individual artistic goals, across a range of chosen art forms and art practices.
