Artists Emily Crockford, Digby Webster and Neil Tomkins were all selected as finalists for this year's Archibald Prize.

Emily - who lives with disability - submitted a self-portrait of her with her late father John. Digby - who also lives with disability - teamed up with Neil to submit portraits of each other as a combined work.

Emily - who recently received the 2020 Australia Council National Arts and Disability Award for an Emerging Artist - is supported by Studio A, a visual arts company in Sydney which provides professional development for artists living with intellectual disability.

Studio A's CEO Gabrielle Mordy will join Emily, Digby and Neil as the artists discuss the development of their creativity and careers, what it's like being an artist with disability in Australia's visual art sector and their involvement with this year's Archibald Prize.

The moderator for this FREE online Q&A event will be artist David Capra.

This is the second edition of Accessible Arts’ In-Conversation series for 2020. Accessible Arts is NSW’s peak arts and disability organisation and the In-Conversation program profiles arts practitioners with disability.
