Gabrielle Mordy and Emma Johnston will discuss the establishment of Australia’s flagship art and disability studio, Studio A, and artists Greg Sindel and Skye Saxon will discuss their art and the role that Studio A plays in their creative and professional development. They will be interviewed by Michael Dagostino, Director of Campbelltown Arts Centre and Accessible Arts Board Member.
Studio A is a supported studio based in Sydney that tackles the barriers which artists with intellectual disability face in accessing conventional education, professional development and the opportunities needed to be successful visual artists. The studio supports artists across a range of disciplines, facilitating workshops, exhibitions, collaborations and strategic partnerships.
Gabrielle and Emma will discuss the history and structure of Studio A, and how they have established a studio using diverse income streams (including government funding, philanthropy and the NDIS) that supports creative and professional development pathways for artists with intellectual disability. Studio A artists Greg and Skye will discuss their art and the role that Studio A plays in their development.
This event will have live closed captioning and Auslan interpretation. Please advise any other access requirements during the registration process.
