Get Out! is a visual and performing arts program for adults with disability, providing respite for their families and voluntary carers
Get Out! is designed for adults with disability, including those with an intellectual, physical, sensory disability or an acquired brain injury. The program is facilitated by professional visual and performing artists, and qualified support workers.
Lead artist Katie Lockett, supporting artist Lea Czikowski and On-Site Coordinator Adam Teeuwsen work with Get Out! participants to introduce new visual and performing art forms and develop existing skills. The program has developed over nine years in response to the direct interests, needs and skills of participants. Workshops are exploratory, developmental, skill based, social and fun.
Get Out! outcomes include:
• Diane Doesn’t Sleep (2009), an engaging, surreal performance featuring art, stories, music and sculpture, performed at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre.
• No Drama (2011), a series of small vignettes showcasing individual and group works.
• The Happy Stage (2012), presented as a showcase of current works to an intimate audience.
• Frog in a Cage (2014), a staged production presented in partnership with Cube 37 at Frankston Arts Centre.
